Barolo Brunate 2017

The Brunate cru lies in the commune of La Morra and Barolo and is one of the most famous in the region. Alessandro Masnaghetti, aka Map Man, says he is often asked which is his favourite cru and he tries to find an excuse not to give an answer. But just quietly, Brunate is at the top of his list. He goes on to say "I like the earthy style of the wines, sometimes drier and sometimes fleshier, but above all I admire the consistency and character from every position on the slopes and from the hands of every winemaker. This consistency never ceases to amaze me since the vineyards of Brunate are anything but homogenous."

Marcarini's Brunate is a selection of the best grapes from their 4.5 hectares. The wine is aged for two years in medium and large botti and three years in bottle. Austere and imposing, displaying tobacco, spice, cinnamon, tar and dried rose scents; the palate is both powerful and complex with velvety tannins and great persistence. Cellar life of 20 years, more in the finest vintages.

"Licorice, new leather and crushed blue flower aromas form the nose. The licorice note segues over to the firm, elegantly structured palate along with dried cherry, raspberry compote, truffle and white pepper. Polished tannins provide support." 93 points, Kerin O'Keefe
