I love the 1978 Marcarini Brunate and this most recent bottle was another stellar example of both the vintage and this great terroir.

I love the 1978 Marcarini Brunate and this most recent bottle was another stellar example of both the vintage and this great terroir. The beautiful nose wafts from the glass in a vibrant and fully mature mélange of red and black cherries, a touch of spiced meats, raw cocoa, sous bois, camphor, fresh almond and oregano in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied, complex and into its apogee, with a rock solid core of sweet fruit, great soil inflection, outstanding focus and grip and a very long, well-balanced and modestly tannic finish. Great juice in its prime, but with decades and decades of life still ahead of it. 2014-2055.
