The 2003 Barolo Brunate reveals a darker color and weightier personality in its expression of dark fruit leather spices beef bouillon and coffee beans. Although an attractive wine it is not especially fresh and looks to be on a relatively fast aging curve. This is a solid effort from Marcarini even if most estates with holdings in Brunate achieved a higher level in 2003 a vintage in which this historic fabled vineyard was particularly advantaged. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2013.Importer: Empson USA Alexandria VA; tel. (703) 684-0900

Expressive aromas of mocha truffle and brown spices. Fatter sweeter and silkier than La Serra with a nutty quality that reminded me of a maturing traditionally styled Barolo. Impressively silky and round with plenty of material to support its relatively fine tannins and elevated alcohol. Broad and ripe for the year; in fact this makes La Serra seem dry in comparison.
