This historic estate, dating back to the mid-1800s, is run by Manuel Marchetti, who is maintaining the family’s dedication to tradition and quality. Founded by the late Luisa Marcarini’s great grandfather, the estate was the very first in the area to designate single vineyards on its labels, as early as the 1950s and their range of classic Piedmontese wines offers both typicity and value.
The 2013 Barolo Brunate is laced with the essence of dark cherry, herb, licorice, sage, tobacco and menthol. The aromatic intensity, intrigue and textural depth of Brunate comes through nicely. Deep, rich and beautifully layered, the 2013 offers lovely depth and balance in the classic understated Marcarini style. Date Tasted: Feb 2017; Drink: 2018-2028; Rating: 91 Points; Antonio Galloni
Love the label design, and from a relatively brief experience of this producer (2008, 2010, 2013), I have to say I love the style too. Leave it alone in the glass, or decanter, and you’ll be amply rewarded with the pure scent of liquorice root. Wow, does that smell good. In with that some blonde tobacco, red cherry, dried cranberry and sweet herb. It’s medium bodied, and only just, light and pure, almost delicate even, with a gentle rasp of fine tannin, cool strawberry acidity, and long even length. Such finesse. If you’re patient, or like something almost ‘Burgundian’ in style, this is a beauty. Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $110; Closure: Cork; Drink : 2020 - 2034+; Rating: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
