Agricola Marrone has been producing outstanding wines in Piemonte for four generations. The third and fourth generations run the estate today and take every care to ensure the quality of their wines… the grapes are even hand-picked into small boxes and transported to the winery on sleds to avoid them being bounced about on the back of a trailer! The wines reflect perfectly their terroir but are, at the same time supremely drinkable lacking the aggressive tannins of so many wines from the region.

In The Vineyard
King of Wines, Wine of the Kings. Barolo is a symbol of made in Italy all over the world and the pride of every producer. It is said that when you tasted a Barolo you met the Producer even if you have never met him, because every Producer puts all of himself, his experience and his passion in this Wine. And Barolo returns you with unique sensations, sensations that change sip after sip, year after year, to make life's beautiful moments even more beautiful.
"This wine shows a lovely delicate linear expression in the glass. Light and translucent, the aromatics are certainly slightly more assertive than the delicate Nebbiolo colour with sweet fruit red cherry aromatics, dried potpourri herbs, rose petals, red liquorice and sweet sun-dried red currants. The palate shows a fine boned structure resting comfortably on a taut frame of sinewy tannins and deliciously tangy fresh acids. But Nebbiolo is a deceptive grape and the light touch concentration, minerality and subtle tobacco and tar hints really make this quite a food friendly mouthful. Don’t expect to just pop and pour because it’s not a Barolo, this wine needs a good 1 to 2 hour decant and only then do you really get your monies worth. A classical beauty. Drink now to 2028+."- Greg Sherwood MW.
