"Readers who want to understand why Brunate is considered one of Piedmont's great vineyards should check out Marcarini 2005 Barolo Brunate. The wine reveals another dimension of density and richness vis-a-vis the La Serra, with subtle balsamic notes that gradually emerge to round out the dark red fruit. Everything about this wine is beautifully balanced. The wine gains power on the close, where the strong, muscular finish sees notes of dark fruits, and spices make a second appearance. The tannins could use another year or two in bottle to soften, but this remains an outstanding Barolo in a very tricky vintage. To be sure, the style is relatively subdued, as is the case with virtually all Barolos in 2005, yet this wine offers commendable harmony. Brunate is simply Brunate, and that's all there is to it. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025."~AG
