93 pts.Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: August, 2005
The 2000 Barolo Marenca, the only offering in the market from this superb vineyard, is the richest and most important of the four, powerful and sweet aroma with warm and penetrating notes of licorice, tar, and dried roses, a meaty, large-framed palate, and plush, firm tannins on its long and lingering finish. Drink: 2005–2020.

Very clean and focused, with plum, spice and mineral character. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a silky finish. Best after 2008.
