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.

    "Deep red. Pure, fruit-driven aromas of redcurrant, tobacco and licorice, along with a strong floral component and a balsamic suggestion of incense; atypically open for this wine at such an early stage. Bigger and denser in the mouth than La Serra; more powerfully structured and even less forthcoming today. Comes across as richer but less elegant. Finishes with big, broad, ripe tannins."
