JS 93 WS 92 AG 92 IWC 91+ WA 91 Pts - According to James Suckling - "So much floral character on the nose, plus ripe fruits. Full body with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Subtle and reserved."

According to Wine Spectator - "This needs air to reveal a dense core of cherry, currant, tar and leather flavors, matched to a solid, tightly woven structure. The pointed tannins hold court on the finish for now, but sweet fruit and licorice accents persist. Best from 2017 through 2030."

According to Antonio Galloni - "Ratti's 2010 Barolo Marcenasco is gorgeous. Dark red cherries, spices, new leather, menthol and tobacco are all laced together in the glass. The French oak is a bit evident at this stage, yet the weight, richness and body of the year comes through in spades. The Marcenasco is made from a collection of sites in La Morra. The 2010 was aged predominantly in cask, while about a third of the wine was aged in French oak barriques."

According to Stephen Tanzer - "Good bright red. Musky aromas of currant, plum, minerals, graphite and licorice. Juicy, rich in extract and precise, with an enticing savory quality to the dark currant and mineral flavors. Structured, bright wine with lovely balancing acidity. This serious young Barolo seemed to shut down in the glass but already expresses its terroir clearly."

According to Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Barolo Marcenasco is a perfumed and floral wine with pressed violets and crushed rose petal at the front of dark tones of spice and pipe tobacco. The wine shows and exotic, almost spicy personality with a good level of heft and density at the back. It meets your need, should you have it, for a bold, deeply layered Barolo. Drink: 2016-2026." 14.5% ABV.
