The 2012 Barolo Marcenasco is a soft, open-knit wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the red cherry and plum fruit retains its youthful vibrancy. This is an especially supple, round style, with mid-weight structure and soft tannins (for Barolo) that contribute to the wine's near-term appeal. Last tasted Nov 2016; Drink now-2022.
Compared to the more expressive and immediate Barolo Conca, I found the 2012 Barolo Marcenasco to be slower to open. The bouquet does offer cassis, dark berry, tar and licorice, but the delivery shows less overall intensity. The wine is well balanced in the mouth with silky tannins that are contrasted against pleasing freshness and lasting fruit. I suggest a slightly shorter drinking window for this Barolo from La Morra.
