Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco Conca Barolo 2005
The Barolo DOCG Marcenasco Conca is boldly full-bodied and tannic. It's color is garnet red. A delicate and persistent bouquet with traces of licorice and Lebanese cedar pine. Full flavored, warm and tannic. A great wine for important dishes, red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
Half way up the hill overlooking the main Barolo valley, along the first spurs of the neatly aligned vineyards, lies the Abbey of the Annunziata (Our Lady of the Annunciation), a priceless jewel of the 15th Century. Just as the good friars of centuries past produced wines from the grapes grown along the hollow below their abbey, a position of glory and grandeur, today, faithful to their same timeless wisdom, wines of incomparable quality are produced.
