2016 Marcarini "La Serra" Barolo

SKU #1498844 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A Barolo with such intense, fine-grained tannins, yet it’s so deep and poised with polish and energy. Full-bodied, yet it remains agile and layered. Strawberries, bark, hazelnuts and hints of rose petals. Give this four or five years in the bottle, at least. But a classic wine. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark All about finesse, this ethereally elegant red opens with scents of rose, crushed mint, red berry and hints of new leather. The polished, precise palate features strawberry compote, spiced cranberry, star anise and a dash of white pepper. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity and taut, refined tannins. (KO) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The Marcarini family began making a stricter selection for this wine in 2015, using the remaining fruit from La Serra and Brunate for their Barolo del Comune di La Morra. That decision paid in this elegant 2016 La Serra. Its tight red-berry flavors are crunchy and fresh, lifted by notes of orange zest, and deepened by undertones of licorice and tobacco. Mouthwatering acidity drives the flavors, and the mid-weight frame gives it plenty of youthful appeal. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The genial Marchetti family produce two single-vineyard wines from their holdings in La Morra. Brunate is relatively powerful and often shows better, while La Serra is usually more graceful and in this vintage has the edge. The raspberry-scented nose has charm and poise thanks to its floral tones. It shows freshness and clarity but doesn't lack concentration. It's well balanced with both weight and sucrosity and no excesses. Long. (SB) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
