I am no Barolo expert but recently bought a handful of them -- Burlotto, Marengo, Molino, Porro, Schiavenza, Fenocchio -- as these seemed to be more or less traditional, not too slick, but not appealing to some imaginary purity through austerity either.

Well this wine is just incredible, a far more positive experience with Barolo than I've had in the past. I still think Brunello is better, more charming and more Italian -- Barolo for me is a German red wine posing as Italian, it is so forbidding and often drily intellectual -- but this is good. At one point it opened up to reveal very heady coffee notes, very exotic, better than any real coffee.

I am not sure if I can recommend it, however. Right now there are glimpses of greatness, but has tannins like broken glass and the fruit seems a bit thin. I am not sure of the aging potential. I wonder if this cuvée might be better in a year like 2006, while this is a year to get the Brunate. With the Brunate, 2010's elegance should tame the fruitiness, but here, you have an elegant vintage and an elegant vineyard which together could add up to excessive leanness.

Dark garnet faintly bricking at the edges. Violets, blackberry, sour cherry, and tar on the nose. Red fruits and violets give way to layers of blackberry, chocolate and tar. Tannin still firm and fine. Great mouth feel and a long finish.

Nose: Though very young, the nose is perfumed with fresh picked roses, red cherries, tar, strawberries, and some violets. The nose is certainly on the feminine side with good style for its youth.

Taste: Medium bodied with high acidity and youthful tannins. The feel is more demure with red cherries, strawberries, some leather notes, and fresh picked roses.

Overall: This is a very pretty and young Barolo. I would love to see where this goes with about 15 years time.

Very dark red and just faintly bricking. Rich nose of violets, tar, baked fruit, and sweet black fruits. Medium bodied, good acidity, showing tar, tobacco, sweet black fruits, and baked fruit. Tannins are present but integrating nicely. Medium plus finish.

Right forward nose with roses, lavendel, tar, cherry candy, clove and orange peel.

Stylistically pure on the palate. Tight tannins, peppery with small hints of oak. Tar and orange comes along with marked minerals. Just a little bit lack of fruit as the acid and pepper cuts right through. No doubt this is too young but since a bought a case I needed to try one out.

Classic nose of tar and roses with ripe fruit. Lovely fruit on the palate with earth and spring flowers. Forthcoming La morra barolo that held our interest during our mushroom risotto dinner this summer in chicago when temps were 62 F. Good barolo

So, raspberries, leather and something close to licorice with a touch of menthol hovering? What can it be? Well, you have to admit that an elegant Barolo from la Morra comes readily to mind, right?
In this case you would be right. Fruit is striking and pure, acidity wonderful and tannins there but extremely elegant. There are few signs of a warm vintage here, except perhaps the wine's readiness to drink and a fruit that's a bit more forward than in an a cooler vintage. Fabulous.

Nose: This is on the tighter side with red cherries, strawberries, roses, earth tones, and roasted herbs. There is nice depth to this with a more feminine style.

Taste: Medium bodied with high acidity and chewy tannins. The structure is clearly youthful, but there are beautiful tones of red cherries, roasted herbs, roses, earth tones and fresh picked red berries.

Overall: This is a pretty young barolo. It certainly needs needs time, but there is a very good base.

Tasted blind. My very first time trying a Barolo... what a surprise! This wine reeked of old world masculine Pinot Noir, somewhat like a burgundy, and a bit like an Ata Rangi too. Very smooth and light, complex, silky tannins, hints of cherries and raspberries, so easy to drink, quite a gentle floral nose. Towards the end, hints of chocolate tingling the palate. Perhaps because it was decanted for over 5 hours, it was lacking in structure, but overall, a very enjoyable wine, and was the wine of the night! I personally think this wine is ready to drink now, and can also still be aged. Today, I found my new love for Barolos.

My first taste of Barolo.
Light ruby red colour, with an orange tinge under the light. Heady aromas of sweet cherry liquor wafting up to my nose as I vinturied it into the decanter. Left to air for 5 hours.
Fine perfumed floral nose. As the vino touched my lips and slid over my tongue, I experienced a throwback to my tasting of NZ pinot noir. The fruitiness was apparent, but with a deeper complexity. As I swirled the wine in my mouth, word that came to mind: fresh, balanced, elegant. Medium finish.
I had always been intimidated by Barolo, due to its reputation of being extremely tannic in its youth, and requiring many years of laying down before approaching drinkability. However, in my humble opinion, I found this Barolo's tannins to be soft and well-integrated.
After about another hour, the wine had developed a hint of chocolate aroma and flavour. Overall, this wine gave me an ethereal feeling. I was left pondering what flavours could have developed had I laid it down in my cellar for a good many more years.
Cheers! Next up, to drink more Barolos, both old and young!

Gave this 3 hours of air slow ox and then followed over 2 hours or so. Very similiar showing to my first bottle. First taste upon opening and it was heavy with tar and earth. It really unwinds with air and becomes very aeromoatic and just explodes from the glass . Fresh and ripe with strawberry, dark cherry, tar and rose. It really picks up weight and the tannins become fine with a long finish. Wonderfull balance and went excellent with some rollatini and sausage.I think this is still pretty young so will give the others a bit more time or make sure to slow ox. This wine seriously delivers for the price. Have gone through 3 from my 6 pack.

Nat cork. Still youthfully tannic, but approachable. Earthy, savory - almost dirty but in a good way, very traditional in style. Certainly not fruit driven. Great acidity, lip smacking. Overall was left yearning for more flavors, depth, etc.

Marengo’s 2006 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is quite striking in this vintage. The wine possesses an extra degree of roundness and richness than normal – which serves to smooth some of the edginess that can be present at times – while still maintaining a delicate personality. The tannins are firm yet nicely integrated as sweet red berries, flowers, spices and mint linger on the elegant close. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.

Marco Marengo is one of Piedmont’s emerging superstar producers. Although the Marengo family has made wine here since 1899, it’s as if someone turned on a switch a few years ago, when the wines – the Barolos in particular – went from excellent to outstanding, a level they have maintained ever since. Marengo’s 2007s are every bit as promising as these 2006s, if not a touch deeper.

This couldn't have come from anywhere in the world but Barolo. To me, it's also typical la Morra (althoough you could no doubt fool me all the way to Castiglione Falletto or Serralunga as well), with a robust, a little bit heavy-weight feeling but it is just so elegant. There's a feeling of autumn, of molten leafs, but yet it's fresh. Strawberries, tar, violet, leather, truffle, indian spice, rowanberries, a menthol touch that has a shade of very noble brett to it. Herbs of course. And there's nuances to everything, it fits like a powerful hand in a silk glove. Acid is plain lovely, tannins are so ripe and still have a grip but are beginning to wind down.
I don't know about points but this is so up my alley that it's damn close to extraordinary. 93, anyway, sounds to little.

Man, is this a treat. The first thing to come up out of the glass is strawberry tar. Violets say hallo, roses, some licorice, something a bit volatile/spearmintish, some asian spice (Cumin? Cardamom?), a touch of truffles/forest floor - mmmm!
And yes, the taste delivers classical Barolo too. Fruit is alive with mashed strawberries, violets, rowanberries and a tad cherry. Tar is there, lovely acidity, nice minerals and sweet, ripe tannins that sandpaper your mouth. This is in the drinking window now, it has a youthfulness to it, but also some nice signs of it becoming an adult. I guess that this, properly stored will have a good life for many years.

Beautiful combination of a rustic as well as elegant style. This was the most elegant one of the three wines I tasted of this domain. Beside all the Barolo characteristics the red fruits are dominant in this wine. Soft tannin structure. Wait 6+ years.
