2008 Barolo Brunate Mario Marengo

Average critic rating : 93.0 points



The 2008 Barolo Brunate is impressive. Layers of dark fruit, menthol, pine, spices and mint flow effortlessly from this impeccably graceful, polished Barolo. The 2008 Brunate is weightless yet deep in the way only Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo are capable. There is a ton of Brunate character here. Layers of fruit build to an explosive finish that saturates every corner of the palate. This is a fabulous showing from Marco Marengo. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. ||This is another outstanding set of wines from Marco Marengo. Most people will flock to the Brunate because of the vineyard’s reputation, and the Vecchia Vigna delle Brunate, Marengo’s old-vine Brunate bottling, because it is highly allocated. Let them. The smart money is on the Bricco Viole, which is without question one of the most elegant and complete wines of the year. Fans of Marengo’s Brunate bottlings will be happy to know that beginning with 2012 production will go up slightly as Marengo is no longer supplying Elio Altare with some of his fruit.||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including: de Grazia Imports; tel.
