Renato Ratti Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba Ochetti 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A slightly faded ruby red. Fine, delicate and persistent bouquet with characteristic trace scents of strawberry and raspberry. Pleasantly bitter, velvety, at once elegant and full. Food Pairings: Red meats, grilled or on the spit, stewed dishes in white or brown sauces; local cheeses, such as: Robiola, Caprini, Mascarpone and Fontina.

Renato Ratti:
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.

It drinks young, the wine stayed tight even after having opened it for 1/2 an hour. It had a wonderful balance of fragant red fruit, herbs and leathery tannins. A smooth and supple finish. This is an excellent value wine that drinks like a more expensive bottle. Bring this med. body wine to your next dinner party, it is very approachable, an easy crowd pleaser.

Bright cherries on the nose. Very smooth and light, predominantly cherries and red fruit with a hint of red licorice & herbs. Soft tannins and a bright finish.

Nebbiolo d'Alba is an ancient wine from the Roero District. Ratti’s Nebbiolo D’Alba is sourced from the single Occhetti vineyard on the sandy hills situated above the left bank of the Tanaro River. Densely planted 30 year old vines yield deeply flavored, concentrated fruit which is carefully destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine is aged one year in oak barrels. Wine Spectator said of this 2008 “offers lovely richness and depth in its juicy red cherries, flowers and French oak. This is a soft, approachable wine meant to be enjoyed over the next few years.

Sweet cherry and plum flavors pick up a hint of licorice as this gains grip. The finish shuts down as the dense tannins take over. Though not that complex right now, this red is bright and long, with a mineral finish. Be patient. Best from 2015 throu... Wine Spectator.

(aged in large barrels, 30% new): Good full red. Perfumed, pure nose offers cherry, rose petal, tar, underbrush and licorice. Suave and seamless on the palate, with ripe acidity energizing the flavors of dark cherry, spices and tar. Finishes very... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Noble and generous, glory of old Piedmont, a wine suitable for long aging, Barolo is the absolute master of the table. It conquers the palate with the conviction of strength, harmony and fullness and holds its sway at length.

Lots of dried mushroom and plums on the nose. Full body, with spicy character, dark chocolate and dried berries. Velvety texture. Best after 2014. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Renato Ratti Barolo Rocche 750ml

The 2007 Barolo Marcenasco is deeply impressive in this vintage. It shows great intensity and roundness in a style that captures the essence of the year. Dark fruit, flowers, spices and minerals wrap around the powerful, supple finish. This is a fabu... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2006 was on the Wine Spectator's 2009 Top 10 Wines of the Year and the 2006 was the #1 Wine of the Year for 2010 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine! A single vineyard, small production Barolo from one of Piedmont's best boutique producers. Renato Ratti has conducted an extensive study of the soils, geography and production of vineyards throughout the area and mapped out individual plots for best quality potential. The Marcenasco vineyard is in the La Morra region, known for its fragrant, elegant wines. 2007 was another incredible year in Piedmont and the Wine Spectator just scored this Barolo 93 points saying "Silky, with intense aromas and flavors of tar, cherry, plum and balsamic, this delivers both power and grace, with a long finish. The balance is there, yet this needs time to come together. Best from 2015 through 2030". Limited
