Buy Marcarini Barolo La Serra 2007
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 Advocate 92 points - 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. ”

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.
