Ochetti Langhe Nebbiolo DOC 2021 Magnum in Case
Renato Ratti came to wine without any family tradition. Free from ancestral ties, he has been able to experience Barolo without any conditioning whatsoever. In 1965 Renato Ratti bought the first vineyard for the production of Barolo: it is a small vineyard in the historical area of Marcenasco, under the Abbey of Annunziata in La Morra. In the ancient Abbey (XV century) is vinified the first Barolo Marcenasco, coming from a single vineyard (cru). In 1969 his nephew Massimo Martinelli, also an oenologist, joined the winery, with whom he developed the vinification, maturation and refinement techniques of Barolo Marcenasco, in order to obtain a refined elegance, finesse and longevity of this important wine. From the mid-seventies to the end of the eighties Renato Ratti became an important point of reference for the wine of the Langhe and Italy. He was appointed president of the Barolo Consortium and then director of the Asti Consortium. After his untimely death, his son Pietro, who had just graduated from the Alba School of Enology, joined the company. In the 90's he continued the enlargement and the restructuring of the family vineyards and he continued the research of the uniqueness of origin of the various subzones.
