  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 87

    Aromas of ripe fruit, leather and polish. Full-bodied, with big, polished tannins and a long, caressing finish. Tight and powerful. Slightly austere now.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    Full ruby-red. Spicy raspberry, minerals and clove on the reticent nose. Dense, sweet and full; a large-scaled, somewhat inelegant wine. Finishes with drying, somewhat rustic tannins. This will require several years of bottle aging.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

    The great 1998 Barolo Marenca offers the essence of Nebbiolo in its sweet bouquet of roasted espresso, cedar, Chinese black tea, soy, and black cherry/plum-like fruit. Dense, full-bodied, and viscous, this exceptional Barolo's purity and essence of Nebbiolo-like character make it a compelling wine to drink now and over the next 12-18 years.

    Actually pretty good wine. Not off the hook but did impress. Decanted 2+ hours.
