Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 2007
An excellent Barolo Brunate from the great Marcarini esatate and the outstanding 2007 vintage in Piedmont. The half-bottle format puts the wine of this special winemaker within reach of moderate budgets. You'll understand why the Nebbiolo grape is as noble as any Bordeaux varietal.
External Reviews for Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate
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.
Good medium red with an amber edge. Distinctly backward nose hints at dark raspberry and menthol; much less showy today than La Serra. Then rich, chewy, sweet and dense in the mouth, with bound-up flavors of dark fruits and camphor. Considerably deeper and more structured than La Serra, but these tannins will also require substantial bottle aging. Marcarini continues to employ a leisurely traditional maceration lasting 40 days, says director Manuel Marchetti, using a continuous and very gentle spray to keep the cap wet.
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.
These are some of the finest Baroli I have ever tasted from Marcarini and proprietor Manuel Marchetti. The warmth of the vintage has given the wines an extra level of generosity in the fruit that acts as a wonderful counterpoint to the firm tannins that are generally present in this estate's young Baroli.
Bright medium red. Sweet, ripe aromas of cherry and redcurrant, with a hint of surmaturite. Fat, lush and sweet, with considerable power to the rich flavors of ripe red fruits and brown spices. Has the stuffing to support its big, round tannins. ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Marcarini Barolo Brunate 750ml
The estate's 2007 Barolo Brunate sweeps across the palate with endless layers of expansive fruit. The Brunate shows fabulous intensity and depth in an uncharacteristically rich, opulent style for Marcarini. Despite the wine's richness there is plenty... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Marcarini Barolo Brunate 750ml
Shows aromas of plum and meat, with a hint of wet earth. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is subtle and fruity. Best after 2010.
