Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Richly scented with black fruit framed with fennel fronds, bay leaves, and rich candied herbs with a touch of vanilla. Big in the mouth with lots of soft, minor tannins that lend a savory tone to the core of bitter black cherry fruit. There’s some roasted overtones to the fruit but the wine remains fresh and relatively mouth filling with a clear, sandy finish. 90pts

low key nose with good balance and complexity, sandy and limastoney with a narrow band of black spice and faint dark cherry note on the nose which developed into a spicier, more typical profile with time. Round and sweet upfronnt with lovely integration though the tannins remained a bit astringent and the acids a touch high they served to compliment the slightly musky, with grapy/ red berry fruit, still a touch young but a complete and succesful barolo

Quite aromatic already this reveals perfumes of earth, tar, flowers and spice notes that are verging to tea. Air brings out a touch of rust and huge white floral note. Warm and open on the palate, this shows off the slightly rustic tannins of the vintage, a little angular and drying, but there’s plenty of strawberry fruit here supported by bright acids to keep this quite engaging. Rose petals and just a hint of herb stem adds some complexity to the wine which gains a nice earthy note through the long finish. Perhaps not quite at peak this is drinking very well and both the flavors and texture hold ones attention. 88pts
