Winemaker's Notes

100% Nebbiolo from a single vineyard. The Brunate cru is one of the most famous in Barolo and expresses the elegance of La Morra to perfection. Austere and imposing, a virile example displaying characteristic power and strength. Its classic style excites the nose with marvellous spice, tobacco, tar and dry rose scents. Élevage is 2 years in 20/40-hl barrels of Slavonian oak.

Critical Acclaim

"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. "
93 Points

"Good deep red. Extremely fresh, perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry and rose petal. Juicy and tightly wound, with firm acidity giving cut and lift to the wine's vibrant, primary red fruit flavors. This has a coolness I find refreshing in this warm vintage. Intensely flavored and very long on the aftertaste. A superb vintage for this wine, with a long life ahead of it."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
