Palate Profile

 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A deep well of macerated cherry, plum, freshly cut grass, white pepper and tar flavors highlights this dense, muscular red. Quickly goes from enticing to closed down as the beefy tannins ply the finish. All the components are there. *Top 100 Wines of 2019* (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A pure, subtle Barolo 2016, showing poached strawberries, red-apple tart, rose-water and dried cloves. Medium-bodied and tight with fine tannins, steely acidity and a medium-chewy finish. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is a beautifully fully and generous expression from a vineyard that has historically been farmed by the Ratti family of La Morra. The Marcenasco cru is located directly under the winery, and although it is not in the official list of MGA crus, the vineyard name is registered to this winery. In the 2015 Barolo Marcenasco, you get the full fruit and dark berry nuances of the vintage with pretty softness and approachable, supple tannins. This wine celebrated its 50th anniversary (1965-2015) with this vintage. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Ratti's 2015 Barolo Marcenasco is very pretty in its 50th anniversary. Soft, pliant and inviting, the Marcenasco captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Pretty floral and spiced notes add nuance to a core of sweet red berry fruit. Medium in body and racy, with lovely persistence, the 2015 has so much to offer. This is one of the finer recent versions of the Marcenasco I can remember tasting. The 2015 is flat out delicious. (AG) Inner quote mark (11/2019)
