Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2010 Barolo Brunate starts off with savory notes of cured meat and smoked bacon that unfold to reveal dark fruit and bitter chocolate as the wine evolves. Wines from the Brunate cru always deliver an extra sense of boldness and ripeness and Marcarini’s expression is no exception. Chopped mint, cinnamon and black olive appear at different stages of the experience. The tannins show some astringency so give this wine an extra year or two of cellar aging. Drink: 2017-2027.

This elegant red offers enticing aromas of rose, strawberry and cherry, with a hints of tobacco and spice. Firm and well-balanced, showing sweet fruit intertwined with tannins on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2033. 2,000 cases made.

Bright, dark red. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of bitter cherry, blackberry, mint, blood orange and white peach. Then dense, sweet and pliant yet penetrating thanks to terrific vibrant acidity. For a medium-bodied wine, this communicates an impression of strong dry extract. The firm tannins arrive late, allowing the wine's finishing fruit to expand and stain the palate. Classic 2010 energy here.

Incredibly floral with rose petal and lilac aromas, and hints of dried fruits. Full body with firm tannins and a citrus, berry and mineral character. Balanced and structured. Better in 2017.

Deep and beguiling in the glass, the 2010 Barolo Brunate shows the intrigue that is such a central theme in wines from this great site. Rose petal, violet and lavender notes open up in the glass, followed by dark red stone fruits, spices, menthol and tobacco. Broad, firm tannins provide the framework, but this is an unusually polished, young Brunate that is quite impressive, even at this early stage. The texture, breath and layered finish is pure Brunate.
