Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1990

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

intense nose is dark and spicy, brooding and a touch closed exhibiting the menthol note so many of these wines showed over a slightly roasted, espresso foam tinged base. Develops a bit of a floral note with time, more carnation than rose. Seamless in the mouth though lacking the balance of the 89. Great depth of flavor with tar, mineral, and dark, singed berry fruit. Very typical of 1990 though not to the extreme of many wines of this vintage. Still needs time to develop but may always remain a touch monolithic.
