Extremely floral and exotic on the nose with gorgeous fruit and wild aromas. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Just a hint of wood at the end. Shows focus and depth. Give four or five years, please. Try in 2024.

Again, you get that ripe, raw fruit aroma from the 2015 Barolo Mariondino, with lots of plummy dark fruit and dried blackberry at the back. On the Parusso scale (one that always prizes intensity), this wine is mid-weight in approach, calling for something like a wild boar dish. There is also a note of sour cherry on the close.
