2019 Luigi Pira ‘Marenca’ Barolo

Classic south/south-west exposure. The only difference in the vinification process is the oak maturation. Around 50% goes into large-format aged botti and the remainder in tonneaux, partially new (1 year in tonneaux and 1 year in large botti). ‘Marenca’ is only offered as a cru Barolo by Pira – the other owner, Angelo Gaja, use theirs (along with their ‘Margheria’) in Barolo ‘Sperss’. The nose is fresh, with complex aromas that range from wild berries to dark chocolate and dried herbs. ‘Marenca’ is characterised by a darker and more earthy palate of leather, tobacco, stock, black cherry, chocolate and dark spices.  Natasha Johns.
