External Reviews for Marengo M. Barolo Brunate
Bright, dark red. Musky aromas of raspberry, nutmeg, mace, chocolate and dried flowers. Sweeter and denser than the Bricco Viole but quite backward. A full, chewy, rather powerful wine with very good inner-mouth energy. Finishes long and powerful, with substantial tannic clout and lingering sweetness. This will require at least a few years to soften.
Very fresh and fruity with mineral, berry and raspberry aromas and flavors. Full and silky. Needs time to develop. Best after 2008.
The 2001 Barolo Brunate, from one of Barolo's most storied sites, presents a dark ruby color along with a deep, penetrating nose of spices, menthol and eucalyptus. Layers of super-rich dark fruit, menthol, toasted oak and balsamic notes emerge in this beautifully delineated chameleon-like wine which at times appears soft and feminine, while at others appears weighty and authoritative. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
Balanced and harmonious, with blackberry, light vanilla and mineral aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied. Grows on the palate. Chewy. Needs time. Best after 2013.
From one of the top vineyards in La Morra. The wine has a deep red color, with aromas of cherries, redcurrant and coffee. Full-bodied, soft and clean, with sweet and well integrated tannins.
The 2004 Barolo Brunate is textbook Barolo from one of Piedmontandrsquo;s most historic sites. Gorgeous, open aromatics lead to a perfumed core of dark cherries, spices, menthol and eucalyptus. This vibrant, pure Barolo needs bottle age to come together, but it is a majestic wine in the making. Readers looking for an under the radar gem need look no further than Marco Marengoandrsquo;s sublime 2004 Barolo Brunate. Anticipated maturity: 2011andndash;2024.
