    September 11, 2016 - Note: I use a rating scale for which 85 represents a very good wine.

    Opened and decanted (narrow bottom decanter) for 1.5 hours or so. The wine improved meaningfully as a result of the (it is a Barolo). As others have noted, black cherry flavors, tannins not quite as soft as I hoped they would be. I have another, and I will wait a few (5) years to revisit. Could have been a little smoother (maybe).

    June 10, 2016 - Pale garnet. Polished, smooth and well balanced leathery, tar, cherry fruit, soft tannins and nice acids. Drinking well now with at least another 5-10 years ahead.

    October 26, 2014 - Nose: Lovely and feminine with red fruits, cherries, tar, strawberries, roses, and all sorts of wild flowers. There is nice depth with nice depth.

    Taste: Medium bodied with medium/high acidity and silky tannins. Balanced and pretty with red cherries, tar, strawberries, wild flowers, and incense on the back end.

    Overall: A pretty Marcarini. This grew more with air and became even more pretty.

    February 6, 2014 - With about an hour of air, the palate shows black cherry intermixed with "browner" aspects such as the scent of beef soup and bullion cube, along with a bit of pine. This is good enough, but lacks the high notes and florality of really good Barolo. The texture and the structure are softening, and there is also a ton of sediment.
