Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco 2012
Wine SpectatorIntense aromas of cherry, tar, wild herb and camphor signal this rich, fleshy red. Cherry fruit comes forward on the palate, while tobacco, licorice and iron notes play supporting roles. The dusty tannins are moderate. Long finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. 1,600 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastSubdued aromas recalling grilled herb, orange peel and a hint of freshly picked rose come together on this. The palate offers sour cherry, mint and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins that leave a firm, rather astringent finish.
