Barolo Marenca has an intense garnet red colour. The nose is striking because of its freshness and the great complexity of the aromas, ranging from wild berries, vanilla and chocolate, to aromatic herbs. It is vigorous on the palate, rich in extracts, with energetic but pleasant tannins, softened by the wise use of wood for the aging process. It is a powerful and intriguing Barolo with a long life.

Bright ruby in the glass, Pira's Marenca 2019 shows a bright definition of liquorice stick with vibrant violet and a bergamot-like citrus note. The attack is elegant, refreshing and savoury, but then the palate is dominated by firm, grainy tannins with a dusty yet sweet finish. A greatly powerful wine which deserves attention for its ageing ability.

A bit more reserved now, the 2019 Barolo Marenca is ripe with kirsch, tobacco, leather, and anise and is a more meditative wine that will need time to unfurl. It takes on even more power and structure on the palate, with ripe muscular tannins and ample fruit throughout. Full-bodied, with notes of ripe cherry, tea leaf, and turned earth, this one demands time. Drink 2026-2046.
