Marcarini Barolo La Serra 2007
Marcarini's La Serra is a unique Nebbiolo with citrus notes and red fruit backed by tones of watermelon, fennel and anise seed. It's an offbeat wine but it does have personality.- WE90
The 2007 Barolo La Serra emerges from the glass with a bouquet redolent of perfumed red berries, flowers and mint, all quite typical of this site. In 2007 La Serra shows a touch more volume and depth than is usually the case, which helps to balance the hard, firm tannins that are often found in this wine. This is a beautifully proportioned, harmonious Barolo from Marcarini. It is already so open and expressive, it is hard for me to envision a long life, but most of the bottles will have been long consumed before that is likely to be an issue. The fruit was harvested on October 1 and 2. The wine saw 15 days of fermentation, followed by another 39 days of contact with the skins. The wine then spent two years in large, neutral casks prior to being racked into steel to rest before being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. - WA92
To understand Marcarini Winery, one must look beyond its most contemporary aspects of modern vineyard and vinification equipment and its growing international market: one must examine its history and traditions.
Today as in the past, the Marcarini family, now six generations strong, manages their own vineyards with passion. They produce wine according to the most rigorous Piedmont and, in particular, Langhe traditions. This is the Marcarini Winery: its proprietors, vineyards, wine cellars, wines and history.
It is a history made by intelligent choices and hard work, by technique and intuition, lived far away from the spotlight; a history for friends and for all fine wine lovers who yearn for things made well and with heart.
In the village of La Morra in the Langhe, where the vine has since time immemorial dominated over other cultivations, the winemaker’s ancient spirit is revived daily, with the noble goal of capturing the perfection of quality in each wine.
