Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1967

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

lovely bright color shows great gradation. volatile and high-toned nose starts with a strong enamel note, earthy, spicy, lurking fruit, campfire, bit of black licorice, with time developes sour note of bookbinders glue. Bright, acid driven red berries in the mouth, mostly resolved tannins though still some adding support, orange peel and green strawberry fruit throughout, nervous and a bit fading in the mouth intact and in fact with time the bright mouth adds the silkiness of old wine and retains a fine long finish. No doubt somewhat past peak but still a very fine bottle.

Subtle and yet quite complex on the nose with layers of nutty aromas, crushed herbs, green herbs, middle eastern spices and subtle strawberry top fruit. Soft in the mouth, supple almost to the point of creaminess with round, small scaled fruit flavors framed by notes of smoke, earth, caraway seeds, and nuanced leather and dried mushroom notes. A lovely wine, though one that is quite subtle and should be enjoyed on its own in a quiet space with expansive views. 89pts

This was remarkably youthful in appearance when compared with all the other wines younger than the 1982 on the table. A whiff of smoke greeted the nose followed by notes of oysershell, wild berry fruits, leather, sweet pipe tobacco, and BBQ sauce notes all intense and quite perfumes. In the mouth this was fruity with a sweet freshness to the flavors of wild berries and lingonberries that were nicely framed with hints of mushroom, tobacco, and mineral notes. the tannins were fading but intact and the acids well integrated and supporting the fruit on the moderately long finish. A lovely mature Barolo but one that was a bit of a fruity outlier. 89pts
