    December 2, 2016 - Clear, medium garnet with tawny hues. The nose is earthy, with mushroom, forest floor, some tar, roses and minty dried herbs. The nose is fairly closed and developed. The palate is dry, but much more fruit-driven than the nose, with ripe red cherry and dried black plum. The acidity is medium (+) to high as are the drying tannins. The alcohol is likewise medium (+) to high at 14%. This is a medium (+) to full- bodied wine, with medium (+) flavor intensity and length. It displays great balance and restrained power. It is drinking very well now and may continue to improve and soften with further aging.

    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).

    August 26, 2016 - This really sang with dinner last night - didn't make notes then, but tasting today, ungassed, it is slightly rusty/brown, might have been a shade more ruby last night - fresh, fruity, and right in the zone, this was yummy.

    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.
