Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 89
1996 Marcarini Barolo Brunate—The nose recalls Pinot Noir, with sensations of sweet ripe fruit and wet earth on the complex nose. A bit simpler than the 2001, with a soft and round palate and flavors of rich, ripe red fruit. Good length and follow through, although with a shorter finish and less persistence than some of the other wines in this tasting. Still appears to be very young. Drink after 2011-Antonio Galloni

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 94
A perfumed red, with ripe strawberry and vanilla character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Pretty. But still needs time.--1996 Piedmont retrospective. Best after 2007. 2,380 cases made. –JS
