Natalie's Score: 97/100

A savoury, medium-plus-bodied Barolo produced by the Ratti family of La Morra. Fragrant with crushed wild violets with sour cherry, cocoa, anise, baking spice flavours elegant on the palate. The wine is still quite youthful with firm but fine tannins. Try in 2024.

Barolo food pairings: coq au vin, orzo risotto, spezzatino.

Reviews and Ratings

Renato Ratti Marcenasco 2016 Barolo is produced from Nebbiolo wine grapes sourced from a single vineyard. Look for dark raspberry, rose petals and herbal aromas on this elegant, youthful Barolo with Morello cherry, red berry, baking spice flavours with mouth-watering acidity. Give it a little more time in cellar to mellow and marry. Try in 2024. - Community Wine Reviews
