Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Marcarini's 2009 Barolo Brunate is drop-dead gorgeous. The aromas and flavors are a bit brighter and more floral than is often the case, while the darker, balsamic notes typical of Brunate are less evident. Instead, it is the wine's textural finesse and sweetness that speak loud and clear. Hard candy, dried roses and sweet red berries wrap around the textured, inviting finish.

    (2003 Vintage) Medium red with an amber rim. Expressive aromas of mocha, truffle and brown spices. Fatter, sweeter and silkier than La Serra, with a nutty quality that reminded me of a maturing, traditionally styled Barolo. Impressively silky and round, with plenty of material to support its relatively fine tannins and elevated alcohol. Broad and ripe for the year; in fact, this makes La Serra seem dry in comparison.
