About the winery
The first to vinify a Barolo from a single-Vineyard (Barolo Marcenasco 1965) and to develop a map of historical Crus of Barolo ("Carta del Barolo", 1976), Renato Ratti (1934-1988) is considered the great innovator of Barolo. His sophisticated wine-making philosophy and his drive for high quality wines, lives on today thenks to the passion and commitment of his son Pietro. The new cellar, completed by the 2005 harvest, was the first one in the area using gravity for vinifying and was designed with the concept of creating lowest impact to the land and the environment. The wines are produced in the respect of traditions and represent perfectly the quality and the uniquiness of the territory.

History & Geography
1934 Renato Ratti is born. After studying enology in Alba he "emigrates" to Brazil where he is put in charge of the production of Vermouths and sparkling wines for Cinzano of Sao Paolo. The experiences gained operating in such a vast, and challenging country as Brazil will prove fundamental in the development of an innovative outlook, one that will characterize his later work back in the hills of Piedmont's Langhe region. 1965 Renato Ratti returns to Piedmont and buys his first vineyard for the production of Barolo: a small plot in the historical zone of Marcenasco, right below the Abbey of L'Annunziata in La Morra. In the ancient (14th Century) Abbey, he creates his first single vineyard (cru) Marcenasco Barolo. 1988 After Renato Ratti's death, his son Pietro, fresh graduate at the Enological School in Alba takes charge of the company. In the '90's he carries on the work of expansion and restoration of the family vineyards and research of the local varieties.
