Marcarini Barolo Le Serra
Marcarini Barolo "La Serra" DOCG is garnet in color with slight orange reflections, a shade or two deeper than the Brunate; the bouquet is typical of the La Serra cru, floral (rose and violet petals, mountain flowers), ethereal, appealing and intense; dry, full and sturdy on the palate, austere yet velvety, extremely well balanced.
"This is very tight with lots of walnut oil to the red fruit on the nose and palate. Medium-to full-bodied with very fine, rather laid-back tannins and fresher red berries coming through on the finish. A finely wrought, graceful wine that promises more complexity with a couple of years of aging." 93 Points James Suckling
