1970 Marcarini Barolo Brunate
John Gilman 92 pointsThe 1970 vintage of Marcarini’s Brunate has reached a beautiful moment in its evolution, as it is very, very transparent and elegant in profile and really is quite “Burgundian” in its synthesis of fruit and soil elements. The refined bouquet wafts from the glass in a complex mix of cherries, sweet almonds, autumnal soil tones, dried herbs, camphor and a dollop of spiced meats in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and very soil-driven in personality, with fine intensity, melted tannins and lovely length and grip on the focused and tertiary finish. Lovely juice at its peak, but with still some life ahead of it. (Drink between 2014-2025)
