TASTING NOTES

An important, prestigious and envied interpreter of the Piedmont territory, this is Barolo. As early as the 17th century, there are reports of Nebbiolo being cultivated right here in Marcenasco, known as "Marcenascum” at the time. Barolo is the highest elevation of the Nebbiolo variety, a DOCG that can only be produced from Nebbiolo grapes and within 11 clearly defined municipalities. Marcenasco is a true cru and part of the history of the Renato Ratti winery: Nebbiolo is grown at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level, cultivated on a guyot, on south-eastern soils rich in the famous Marne di Sant'Agata (fine sand mixed with clay). Marcenasco grapes are harvested by hand in October, fermented in stainless steel and remain on the skins for about a week. In around November, the wine is transferred to oak for malolactic fermentation. It is then aged for two years in 25 hl and 50 hl oak barrels before being bottled. Ratti's Barolo is a long-lived wine that develops and amazes over time. A deep garnet red with aromas of liquorice, undergrowth and oriental spices. Fresh on the palate with great fullness and vigour, a wine with powerful but elegant drinkability. Perfect enjoyed with red meat dishes, blue cheeses, roasts or stews. Ideal to enjoy with friends or family. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Ratti Renato

The Ratti winery is located not far from La Morra, in the province of Cuneo, in the very heart of the Barolo territory, amidst the gentle contours of the area's hills and the finest vineyards. It is located within the Abbey of Annunziata, and still boasts a production that is closely attached to ancient local traditions. The production of wines mainly follows the teachings of the monks who have inhabited the Abbey over the centuries. The few additions of the most advanced techniques have been carefully chosen to allow the final product to bring out the best of the unique properties of the soil and its most precious grapes. The end result? Some Piedmontese wines that are rich in character, strong and decisive, but at the same time elegant and fragrant, capable of narrating not only the best of the territory, but also the oldest history of the area. In addition to Barolo, the winery also boasts a large production of Nebbiolo and fine grappas, all to be discovered.
