Average critic rating : 90.0 points



The 1997 Barolo Mariondino, from a vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, possesses a dense ruby/purple color, lots of tannin and structure, notes of earth, black cherry jam, smoke, coffee, licorice, and soy, outstanding concentration, and a spicy, long finish. The fat and glycerin found in many 1997s is present, but is buttressed by obvious tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 135 Jun 2001

At Parusso the grapes are left to rest for seven or so days after picking, whole bunch fermentation, rotofermentors, new barriques and batonnage: it is almost impossible to say that these aren’t modern wines. The mission here is to make Barolo that is as seductive in its youth as it is with bottle age, and the results are undeniably successful. These are seductive, idiosyncratic Barolo with a considerable following.

“Marco Parusso is one of the most adventurous producers in Piemonte. Never content, Parusso is willing to take more risks in the pursuit of greatness than the vast majority of his colleagues.” Antonio Galloni
