Renato Ratti Marcenasco 2018 Barolo is a vibrant and savoury 100% Nebbiolo sourced from a single-vineyard and produced by the Ratti family of La Morra. Fragrant with Morello cherry, red berry, earthy violets and flinty stony flavours silky on the palate with a mouth-watering finish. Tannins are structured and fine-grained. Try in 2024 when the wine will begin to show its best or cellar to 2035.

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