The wine-making process of Barolo Marenca takes place in horizontal fermentation tanks with temperature control for 12-15 days. The wine matures over 24 moths, partly in small wooden barrels and partly in large wooden barrels.
Intense garnet red colour. The nose is fresh, with complex perfumes that range from wild berries to vanilla, chocolate and aromatic herbs. On the palate it is very vigorous, rich in extracts, with lively and pleasant tannins that are rounded through a skilful use of wood. A powerful, tantalizing wine with a great ageing potential.

Antonio Galloni’s comments:

The 2012 Barolo Marenca possesses terrific depth, power and grip, with a serious center of fruit and enough depth to drink well for a number of years. Bright red stone fruit, pomegranate, blood orange, smoke and crushed rocks all develop in the glass. The tannins are imposing and yet there is more than enough depth to provide balance. As always, the Marenca is distinguished by its intense, ample mid-palate. Drink 2017-2024. Tasted Nov 2016.
