The 2015 Barolo Brunate is decidedly not a shy wine. It opens to dark color saturation and varietal aromas that are dark and thick in character. That characteristic power and determination of the Brunate cru is played forward with perfect pitch. This wine shows compact and firm structure, like tight bricks layered one on top of the other, to form the density and richness that makes such a lasting impact on the palate. Some 3,700 bottles were created.

An impressive nose, for the bright red cherries on offer, as well as an entrancing array of dried flowers, herbs and spices. The palate arrives in succulent and fresh form with a luscious and impressive thread of fresh and juicy tannins. Impressive freshness and energy at the finish. Drink or hold.

The 2015 Barolo Brunate is another enticing wine in this range. Black cherry, spice, leather and licorice all flesh out in the glass. The breadth and textural resonance that are such signatures of Brunate emerge effortlessly. I would give the 2015 a few years in bottle to come together. Even in the early going, the 2015 exudes class. The Brunate is the darkest and most powerful wine in this range.
