marchesi di barolo

A Marchesi shade of winter

Marchesi di Barolo 2003 Barolo (Piedmont) – Kind of a nebbiolo-bomb, full of appealing dark fruit and wrapped in a lush, almost gelatinous texture. A little overcooked, perhaps. It’s not what I think of as Barolo, but as a non-specific wine it’s tasty enough. (12/08)

Sarmassa vecchio

Marchesi di Barolo 2000 Barolo Sarmassa (Piedmont) – Licorice espresso. Goregous and balanced. Still quite tannic and primary. Beautifully composed, with a long finish. Really, really nice. (2/08)
