Nebbiolo | Italy
About The Producer
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Barolo Brunate flows onto the palate with layers of dark fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. It is an unusually plush, generous wine for the year, endowed with tons of grace and sheer depth. This is a fabulous, layered Brunate that should drink well with a few more years in the bottle. Layers of sweet, perfumed fruit, rose petals and spices build effortlessly to the gracious, elegant finish. The Brunate is brooding and tannic, but the wine softens a bit with air. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.
A little lean but pretty cedar, vanilla and prune character on the nose and palate. Full body, chewy finish. Needs a couple of years to soften and open. Complex.
