“I notice that the brand name for this estate seems to be transitioning from Renato Ratti to Ratti. The big news from this historic estate in La Morra is the introduction of a new wine, the 2019 Barolo Serradenari, made with fruit from a little nearby farmhouse acquired in 2018. The vines sit at a breezy 500 meters in elevation in a little amphitheater with views of the Alps and the Monviso Mountain.”

“Here's an exciting new submission from the house of Ratti. Serradenari is a large MGA and one of only a few cru sites that exist on the western slope under the village of La Morra. The 2019 Barolo Serradenari has a more botanical-smelling bouquet, and by that I mean that it has lavender bud, thyme, aniseed and the kinds of flowers and herbs that you might find in a fragrant garden. It is nuanced and delicate and framed by a light note of ash or crushed limestone. It finishes quite firm or edgy. Only 6,000 bottles were made.”

"This wine expresses itself with aromas of wild cherries, tart red plums, dried violets and oolong tea leaves. The palate is elegant and almost dances across the mouth, leading with ripe red fruits that give way to savory flavors of fresh bay leaf, clove and balsam. Drink 2025–2040. *Editors' Choice*

La Morra. Just mid ruby. A seductive red-fruit and oak nose, but really subtly done. Oak-laced red fruit with crunchy tannins and refreshing acidity on the finish. Modernist approach, skilfully done. Not ready yet.”
