La Serra is an iconic Barolo cuvée from Marcarini – plainly undervalued given its quality and standing. A relatively high-altitude cru in the commune of La Morra, La Serra produces Barolo of intense florality and vibrant energy. The Marcarini family have coaxed the most exquisite qualities from this terroir in 2017, with a wine to rival far more expensive peers crafting wines from the cru. Endlessly perfumed with both dried and fresh flowers, ripe strawberries and a touch of characteristic tar, the wine was awarded a mighty 97 points from James Suckling who was impressed by its structure.

About Marcarini

Found in the heart of La Morra some 50 kilometres Southeast of Turin, Marcarini is one of the most well-loved Barolo producers around, by both critics and consumers alike. The traditional style and excellent vineyard holdings in the La Morra sub-region produce wines that are long-lived and classic, slightly less strict in style than wines coming from more easterly vineyards. 

 

With a history dating back to the mid-1800s with the founding of the current winery by Giuseppe Tarditi in the village of La Morra, this estate is today run by the sixth and seventh generation of the Marcarini family in Manuel and his three children.

 

A family affair through and through, this 12-hectare estate remains a bastion of exceptional quality and incredible value in the hills of Piedmont. The pride and joy of the Marcarini family is without question their holding in the La Serra cru, which has previously featured in the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines list.
