Review:

The most recent arrival in the Ca’ del Baio winery. Their first Cru Macarini was made in 2003 from a vineyard only 10 years old. Sufficient time is necessary to best appreciate this wine.

100% Nebbiolo from vines planted in 1998.

Ca del Baio Barbaresco Marcarini - A perfect mid-point to the Asili and Valgrande, Marcarini combines power and depth with succulent, plush fruit. The aromas are very showy - mint, licorice, earth, and rose accent the rich dark cherries and wild berries, with a pinch of oak. This bottling shines now with decanting, but will be ideal with 4 plus years in the cellar.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 points:

"The 2005 Barbaresco Marcarini reveals a darker profile than the Valgrande. A large scaled, generous Barbaresco, it possesses attractive dark fruit, menthol and spices with tons of plumpness and density. Anticipated maturity: 2010 - 2019.

It's great to see Ca del Baio and proprietor Giulio Grasso follow up their highly successful 2004s with this set of wines".
