Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

slightly cloudy with less depth and delicacy than the 67. less VA on the nose which starts off with an intense pure pine balsam profile, sandy and spicy as well with a base of boullion, less complex, lurking floral note never gets past the mint which turns wintergreen as the boullion devolves into a more vegetal profile recaling turnips in a root cellar. Decidely softer and voluptuously roung compared to the 67, very complete in the mouth with more nettle and spice than fruit, lovely feathered mouthfeel. Distinctly different that the other wines here though while considered on it's own merits a success.

Soy, soil and sweet spice greet the nose along with deeply macerated herb notes, bouillon, mushrooms and rust. In the mouth this is texturally intact but fully evolved. The flavors are all coffee and chinato with hints of dried orange peel, some peppery spice, and an earthy finish. The acid is quite vivid lending this good drive in the mouth but the tannins remains angular and a bit edgy and everything wraps up quickly on the short finish. 83pts
