LUIGI PIRA Barolo 'Marenca' 2012

The 2012 Marenca is a drop dead gorgeous showing, offering fresh, inviting aromas of ripe strawberries and cherries woven together with mint, exotic spices and fresh minerals. This demonstrates remarkable structure with wonderful overall finesse and balance. It continues to impress with its beautifully polished texture and a long, juicy finish. The Marenca is a sensational effort in the vintage, which should continue to evolve gracefully for years to come. (Best 2018-2031) - June, 2016 (JD)
