Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1964

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Ethereal on the nose with subtle expressions of smoke, apricot, freshly cut blond tobacco mineral earth, and sweet herbs coming together seamlessly over an underlying orange scented mist. On the palate this exudes elegance with subtle red cherry fruit and bitter cherry notes flecked with slightly medicinal notes, hints of black tea, and moments of fennel seed and licorice spice. Long on the palate and showing engaging complexity and fine tannic heft even at this evolved stage, this is a gorgeous, subtle, refined example of Barolo that pays testament to the Cru, the producer, and the vintage. 93pts

This smelled strongly of bananas, vinegar, and VA. Off putting is an understatement and the mouth was no better featuring harsh acids and a touch feel though this was quite rich. Thankfully there was little finish. A defective bottle and one I will refrain from scoring. My experience with this vintage has been troubling with only one particularly noteworthy example to date, though each bottle has shown a variety of defects so I will not write off the vintage quite yet. NR
