  • I'd stay away from the Marcarini Barolos.  GdP has them mostly on the downslope.  When Elvio Cogno left Marcarini, it was over differences in philosophy, mostly over focusing on quality vs. profitability.  The Cognos are probably a bit harder to find, but GdP has them on the upswing, and my notes on the '10s were very laudatory as well. I notice...

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • I'll be in Piemonte from 5/13 to 5/24. I liked GdP's article today about Marcarini Baroli tasted recently and previously in 2007.  Of course, great Barolo at $40 ruins my idea that there's a market for nebbiolo grown outside of Italy and priced as something more reasonable than Monfortino or Gaja.

  • Barolo, while experiencing the greatest explosion of interest in its history, ... the radar have been those of marcarini in La Morra, though for a different reason as far as i can tell. Here the problem is not critical review, which has historically been quite favorable, but rather pricing. As far as I can tell the barolos of marcarini are jus... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1964

    Snoothrank:

    This smelled strongly of bananas, vinegar, and VA. Off putting is an understatement and the mouth was no better featuring harsh acids and a touch feel though this was quite rich. Thankfully there was little finish. A defective bottle and one I will refrain from scoring. My experience with this vintage has been troubling with only one particularl... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1964

    Snoothrank:

    Ethereal on the nose with subtle expressions of smoke, apricot, freshly cut blond tobacco mineral earth, and sweet herbs coming together seamlessly over an underlying orange scented mist. On the palate this exudes elegance with subtle red cherry fruit and bitter cherry notes flecked with slightly medicinal notes, hints of black tea, and moments ... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1967

    Snoothrank:

    Subtle and yet quite complex on the nose with layers of nutty aromas, crushed herbs, green herbs, middle eastern spices and subtle strawberry top fruit. Soft in the mouth, supple almost to the point of creaminess with round, small scaled fruit flavors framed by notes of smoke, earth, caraway seeds, and nuanced leather and dried mushroom notes. A...

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • About 2 yrs. ago I opened a 1975 Marcarini Barolo and expected big things. I was disappointed because it was barely drinkable. My storage conditions are pretty good. A friend of mine brought over a few Barolos from other producers this past Christmas. They were from 1995, 1996, and 1998 and his wines are stored under ideal conditions. All of th...
