Origin Italy, Piedmont, Barolo
Brand Luigi Pira

Winery Notes:

Intense garnet red color. 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 skillful use of wood. A powerful, tantalizing wine with a great ageing potential.

The 2018 Barolo Marenca is a powerful, deep Serralunga Barolo. Wild dark cherry, spice, menthol, licorice, plum, dried herbs and mocha infuse the 2018 with tons of character. There is plenty of richness and intensity, but thankfully the bruising tannins of the past appear to have been tamed. There is a lot of wine here. This is a fine, fine showing.

This Barolo flashes its fruity side, with bright cherry and raspberry flavors accented by rose, tobacco and a hint of black pepper. Firms up yet remains vibrant, with a lingering, spicy aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2042. 600 cases made, 200 cases imported.
