This wine is a deep, lively garnet in color, with very slight orange hues. The bouquet is delicate yet remarkably intense and persistent, reminiscent of violets and roses, liquorice and spice. On the palate, it is austere and impressive, and at the same time, well balanced, round, velvet-textured, both a fine match with food and wonderful on its own.
Wine Maker Notes
La Serra is the other side of Marcarini Barolo: a historical vineyard covering 3.1 hectares (7.6 acres), less forward, albeit contiguous to, Brunate, on the same hillside, with identical south/southwestern exposure.The grapes take a little longer to ripen on the vines; the later harvest, together with a cooler, windier microclimate, are conducive to a softer, rounder Barolo, with greater finesse.
