Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco 2015
$129.00 a Bottle

Ratti Marcenasco labelWine Enthusiast: Enticing scents of ripe wild berry, star anise, menthol and fragrant blue flower mingle with whiffs of camphor and espresso. The smooth, precise palate offers crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and dried botanical herbs alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lifts the finish. Enjoy through 2027. Editors Choice. 96 Points

Decanter: In 1965, Renato Ratti created the 'Marcenasco style', now skilfully being continued by his son Pietro. The cherry scents, cedar, liquorice and sinuous palate faithfully reflect the velvety terroir of La Morra. Both dynamic and drinkable. Drinking Window 2019 - 2040. 93 Points

Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: This is a beautifully fully and generous expression from a vineyard that has historically been farmed by the Ratti family of La Morra. The Marcenasco cru is located directly under the winery, and although it is not in the official list of MGA crus, the vineyard name is registered to this winery. In the 2015 Barolo Marcenasco, you get the full fruit and dark berry nuances of the vintage with pretty softness and approachable, supple tannins. This wine celebrated its 50th anniversary (1965-2015) with this vintage.92 Points
Renato Ratti Barolo Conca 2015
$189.00 a Bottle

Ratti Conca labelWine Enthusiast: Aromas of rose, exotic spice, camphor and woodland berry shape the nose. Focused and linear, the elegant palate offers juicy raspberry, strawberry compote and star anise alongside taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2021-2027. 
94 Points

Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: Pietro Ratti and his family have created a truly beautiful expression from the Conca cru in La Morra. The 2015 Barolo Conca is more austere and closed initially compared to many of its peers from nearby vineyard sites. But you still get a sense of the profound depth and power of this warm vintage. This wine has the textural richness and fiber that is typical of this vintage with a more structured and sophisticated inner personality. A mere 3,000 bottles were made. 94+ Points

James Suckling MW: This is very attractive with fragrant, spicy red-cherry and strawberry aromas, as well as a gently tarry edge and a new-leather note. The palate has a beautifully ripe, plush and approachable, fleshy core of sweet red-fruit flavor. Supple finish. Drink or hold. 94 Points
  
Renato Ratti Barolo Roche dell'Annunziata 2015
$209.00 a Bottle
Ratti Annunziata label
Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: Pietro Ratti's 2015 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata is the most structured and firmly textured of the Barolos presented in this tasting of new releases. This wine is tight and compact at its core, but it needs a little prodding and swirling of the glass before it hints at the grandeur and the layering of fruit nuances embedded in its very DNA. Just give it time, this wine requires a little extra patience before it fully blossoms. All those beautiful Nebbiolo complexities are hidden just below the surface and will emerge with more bottle aging. Only 5,000 bottles were made. 95 Points

James Suckling MW : A chewy and polished red with berry and tile character and hints of plums. Medium-to full-bodied. Chewy tannins that are polished and firm. Very pretty. One of the best ever. Better after 2021. 95 Points

The finish goes on for minutes. Seamless texture. Fresh yet dense. Contrasty. Best Redigaffi ever. Hard not to drink now but a wine for decades. 100 Points

Cepparello Label
Isole e Olena Cepparello IGT 2014 
Antonio Galloni Vinous:
The 2014 Cepparello bristles with all the energy and tension that make the best wines of this year so compelling. The purity of the flavors is remarkable. Translucent, bright and crystalline, the 2014 has so much to offer. Readers will have to be patient with the 2014. It is a superb wine in the making. Drink: 2022-2039. 97 Points
