dark, powerful wine, the 2012 Barolo Brunate is the most brooding and inward of
these wines. With time and a good bit of air, the Brunate becomes a bit more
precise and nuanced, yet it remains a bit monolithic next to the other wines in
the range. A host of savory herbs, licorice, tobacco and dark fruits meld into
the huge, explosive finish. There is no shortage of depth or character.
