Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1982

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Stinky on the nose and fairly reeking of old seaweed on a hot seashore, though those aromas do fade with air being replaced by strong notes of lavender, leather, and herb stems. In the mouth this shows a different side of itself, elegant and silky with excellent balance. Gorgeous fruit, slightly jammy and reminiscent of dark frutti del bosco, fills the palate supported by tannins that are firm and savory. The nose is a bit of a downer but this shows off the brilliance of the 1982 vintage exquisitely. 91pts

the color here is still very youthfull, dark and almost purple tinged. The nose starts out a bit tough with a decidely leathery, nutty base overwhich are laid spicy and savory, soil driven notes with a top note of espresso foam, seems very youthful though then turns distinctly beef boullion cube with particularly strong dehydrated vegetal notes, adds some incense, cigar ash and dried rose with time as well as a light nuance of menthol/licorice. Tougher in the mouth than the 78, minerally and riper though still transparent, finishes a bit short. Some obvious richness upfront with nie bright fruits through the mid-palate which tightens up with air before shutting down some on the finish which is crisp and long. This seems to need quite some time to reach it's peak but is an atypical bottle as others have shown significantly more evolved.
