Barolo Brunate 2015, Barolo La Serra 2015, Barolo Del Comune di La Morra 2015
During the year 2015, the winery Marcarini has changed the method of grape’s transportation into the winery in the harvest period. We moved from carrying the grapes in the cellar through trailers to little boxes of 20 kg each. This way, we are not only able to increase the quality of our wines, thanks to the fact that the berries come intact in the cellar and the must never come in contact with the stalks, extracting less “green tannins” (thing that we noticed already in the “young wines” in the vintages 2015-2016-2017), but also the new method of transporting the grapes allowed us to select them in the vineyard during the picking process.
Historically indeed, in the heart of both single vineyards of La Serra and Brunate, there is an area where the grape’s analysis have always been the best.
Therefore, as an experiment, from the harvest 2015, we started to select and vinify separately those grapes and we noticed that the wine in these particular tanks, embodies even better the characteristics of every single vineyard.
We decided then, that Barolo Brunate and Barolo La Serra of the company, from 2015 will be produced using exclusively the selection.
The other grapes have been used to produce for the very first time a Barolo Del Comune Di La Morra, whose characteristics mirror those of the village of La Morra from where the grapes come from, obtaining this way a Barolo that makes the elegance its strength and that riches the top of its quality in relatively “shorter” periods, showing itself to be easier to approach and more enjoyable even at a young age.
Viceversa, especially in Brunate “selection”, it emerged a Barolo, even more classic and intriguing than before, but slightly more “closed”. That’s why the company has chosen to delay the release on the market of 6 months for the 2015 harvest.
The goal is, regarding the following vintages after 2015, the achievement of another 2 years of aging in bottle that will lead the Barolo Brunate to rest in our cellars for a total of 6 years, in order to offer a product more suited to the final customer, even if we are sure that the aging potential will not disappoint the great Barolo enthusiasts.
