The 2006 Barolo Brunate shows the masculine personality of this site in its dark fruit, minerals, menthol and spices. Today the wine is very much closed in on itself, but the fruit and perfume should emerge as the tannins soften. This is a commendable effort that falls short of being truly inspiring, a shame considering how precious Brunate is. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. ”

Wine maker notes
Barolo Brunate is a wine of great character, which shows its best qualities when paired with roasts, braised beef, game and mushroom or truffle dishes. Characterized by a garnet red color with subtle orange highlights, this wine has a tannic strength which is balanced by its acidity, resulting in an attractive, harmonious presence. The Nebbiolo vines in the small town of Brunate are over 30 years old and enjoy a south-southeast exposure. The soil is calcareous clay with a good percentage of sand. A 100% Nebbiolo wine, it has an intense fragrance of violet with hints of balsamic and small, red fruits. This wine has an astonishingly intense flavor that is elegant and persistent, expressing notes of red fruit, tobacco and liquorice. A great ageing wine, it improves with time, taking on notes of truffle and cinnamon as it ages. This wine is best served at 61F-63F.
