Marcarini on Snooth

  • 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.

    Forum post in the topic Epic Barolo


  • 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

    From the article Marcarini Barolo Brunate


  • 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...

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1967

    Snoothrank:

    This was remarkably youthful in appearance when compared with all the other wines younger than the 1982 on the table. A whiff of smoke greeted the nose followed by notes of oysershell, wild berry fruits, leather, sweet pipe tobacco, and BBQ sauce notes all intense and quite perfumes. In the mouth this was fruity with a sweet freshness to the fla... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1970

    Snoothrank:

    Soy, soil and sweet spice greet the nose along with deeply macerated herb notes, bouillon, mushrooms and rust. In the mouth this is texturally intact but fully evolved. The flavors are all coffee and chinato with hints of dried orange peel, some peppery spice, and an earthy finish. The acid is quite vivid lending this good drive in the mouth but... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1971

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty and autumnal on the nose then turning stoney with aromas of hot rocks, a bit meaty as well and then showing off layers of savory notes. All ginseng, lea & Perrins, and roasted root veggies layered over a core of seared cherry fruit with a hint of mint and a licorice nuance adding further detail. Remaining powerful and vibrant in the mouth ... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1974

    Snoothrank:

    Musty and funky on the nose with a number of tasters calling TCA, though I dont believe that to be the case. This had that musty, chlorine driven aromas that is not uncommon with Barolo of a certain age. It does seem like the wine is corked at first, but the issue diminishes with air, unlike actual TCA which almost always gets worse and more imp... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Barolo Brunate 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Slight seaweed notes greet the nose, which is high toned and rather lean with lots of aromas of dried citrus rinds, leather, and quite a bit of tomato and sun-dried tomato fruitiness. On entry this shows a little tired with a smooth, integrated mouthfeel thats silky but short. Theres still plenty of raspberry and strawberry fruit here and some r... Read More

    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...
