2006 Marcarini Barolo Brunate image
Very traditional producer large Slovenian oak casks, lovely bouquet here of red berry fruit dried rose petals and red licorice spice. Big and chewy on the tongue with lots of dry tannins showing but has lots of everything too needs a bit of time to some around traditional style with firm acidity holding everything together. Finish 50 Most Excellent

(93 Points) The 2006 Barolo Brunate blossoms on the palate with layers of dark fruit, menthol, spices and minerals, all of which come together with a classic, ethereal weight that is quite appealing. The tannins are formidable, but there is more than enough richness and depth in the fruit to provide balance. The finish is surprisingly round and harmonious at this stage but I expect the wine to close down on itself over the coming months. Marcarini’s 2006 Barolo Brunate is simply terrific. Proprietor Manuel Marchetti says that his plot in Brunate sees wider temperature fluctuations than his vineyard in La Serra, which in large part accounts for the differences between his two Barolos. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. Proprietor Manuel Marchetti describes 2006 as a warm year without too many challenges. The Nebbiolo harvest took place in mid-October. The wines were fermented in cement for 45 days and subsequently spent two years in oak prior to being bottled without clarification or filtration. Marchetti’s 2006s show lovely balance and deliver exceptional quality for the money. Wine Advocate # 187, Feb 2010
