The estate’s 2007 Barolo Brunate sweeps across the palate with endless layers of expansive fruit. The Brunate shows fabulous intensity and depth in an uncharacteristically rich, opulent style for Marcarini. Despite the wine’s richness there is plenty of Brunate character, particularly on the finish, where menthol, pine, resin, spices and a host of other balsamic notes speak with great eloquence. Marcarini harvested Brunate on September 24 and 25. The wine saw 15 days of fermentation, followed by another 42 days of contact with the skins. The wine then spent two years in large, neutral casks prior to being racked into steel to rest before being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.
This Barolo from the Brunate cru shows gorgeous characteristics of mature fruit, spice, natural rubber, asphalt, tar and root beer. The wine’s personality is marked by a comforting, almost familiar territory-driven feel that recalls the greatest Nebbiolo-based wines from Piedmont. Save this bottle in your cellar for 10 years or more.
This is slightly herbal, sporting cherry and strawberry flavors as well. A taut, linear red, with tension and a firmly tannic finish. A bit compact now, but with good potential. Best from 2015 through 2030.
Bright medium red. Sweet, ripe aromas of cherry and redcurrant, with a hint of surmaturite. Fat, lush and sweet, with considerable power to the rich flavors of ripe red fruits and brown spices. Has the stuffing to support its big, round tannins. A very ripe style but with more supporting structure and a bit less alcohol (14.2%) than the La Serra.
