Editorial Reviews for Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate
40 day fermentation/maceration then 2 years in botte Dark and earthy on the nose with incipient hints of mushroom, slight confiture of black raspberry and nuanced notes of limestone and smoke 2+ Packed in the mouth with a rich matte feel supported by bright acids and fine ripe tannins 3 A bit tight at first yet layered in the mouth with subtle notes of dried fruits, slightly roasted strawberry, red berries a touch of vegetal freshness, still a bit closed but with obvious richness 3 Very clean and precise on the finish but still short at this point 2 2012-2025 91pts
Deep and filled with roses, this begins a bit monotone on the nose with hints of dry earth, sassafras and beet root. With air this gains a bit or a brownie edge, full of moist earth, hints of game and BO and plump, roasted strawberry. What begins as a lush, round, seductive mouthfeel turns even more polished with air revealing a touch of spice, white pepper and earth that lays like a blanket over the slightly bitter tannins and wonderfully integrated acidity. This is well balanced and fresh but turns just a touch muddied on the finish. 91pts
External Reviews for Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate
The Brunate vineyard is considered one of the very best in the Barolo region, producing intense, well structured wines. This 2004 by Marcarini scored 93 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine as well as The Wine Advocate who said "Soaring aromatics emerge from the estate’s 2004 Barolo Brunate. Menthol, dark cherries, spices, new leather and licorice are all to be found in this generous, layered wine. Sweet, ripe tannins provide a lovely bookend to this rich, classic Barolo from the Brunate vineyard. Still somewhat closed, it is likely to require at least a few years of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024." Limited!!
The Brunate andldquo;grand cruandrdquo; (because it really is considered among the top three best vineyards) has fatter soil with a higher clay content that shapes intense, well-structured wines. This expression delivers a beautiful bouquet of spice, berry fruit and vanilla shadings. The wine stands out thanks to its power and dimension. Drink after 2018.
The 1993 Brunate is equally sweet, but comes across as denser, more structured, and tannic, even though it is relatively accessible. The wine possesses a deep garnet color with more ruby hues, an earthy, cherry-scented nose, and lush, medium to full-bodied, spice-driven flavors. It should evolve and perhaps improve for up to a decade.
Looks, smells and tastes fairly mature already, with a range of licorice, tar and modest blackberry aromas and flavors. Finishes sweet and earthy. Best to drink from 1997.
Located between the communes of Barolo and La Morra, Brunate is one of the zoneandrsquo;s most revered sites. Nebbiolo here often achieves a gentle grace that belies the grapeandrsquo;s inherent power. This excellent andrsquo;04 seems reticent at first, hidden behind a curtain of mineral tannin. It evolves with air, revealing delicate fruit flavors and a deep, profound earthiness. High notes of red cherries and roses are displayed against a backdrop of savory porcini and black truffle. The structure, too, shows a similar tension, a gentle push-pull between the bright acidity and sinewy, saline tannin. Precise and focused, this will reward patient cellaring for ten to 15 years.
Barolo from the Brunate cru shows gorgeous characteristics of mature fruit, spice, natural rubber, asphalt, tar and root beer. The winersquo;s personality is marked by a comforting, almost familiar territory-driven feel that recalls the greatest Nebbiolo-based wines from Piedmont. Save this bottle in your cellar for 10 years or more.
