Description

Menthol and liquorice, porcini mushroom, spice, red and black berries, subdued floral notes. It’s tight, earthy and packed with grainy ‘mineral’ tannin and chalky feel, kind of reticent as at now, but with latent power and perfume to come. Tobacco and chewy feel, on a long firm finish. A lot more grunt this vintage, though that’s a not bad thing either. Wait. 96 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Marcarini's 2016 Barolo Brunate captures much of the mystique of this La Morra site in its beguiling aromatics. Deep, layered and so expressive, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Time in the glass brings out an exotic quality to the red toned fruit, with spice, menthol and floral overtones that linger. I would not be in a rush to open bottles 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
