Marcarini Barolo Brunate 2016

La Morra, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyTasted from a 20ml bottle under screwcap, 2016 managed to overcome its packaging to present with some impressive credentials. The la Morra-based fruit is welcoming. It offers a mix of licorice, mushrooms, and aromatic red fruits with an uncanny balance of acidity that lifts the wine above the palate, transporting it along with grace, yet allowing its complexing power to shine through. Italian firm and dry in the back end, this is an exceptional bottle that will repay a decade or more of cellar time in the fullness of time.Tasted: 16 November 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 94.99 BCLS Producer: Poderi Marcarini, Az Agr.Distributors: Empson Wines Canada
