Critical Acclaim

96 pts James Suckling:  A Barolo with ripe berry, spice and some cedar and chocolate. Dried flowers and some asphalt, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Very classic structure. Shows freshness and solidity. Needs a few years to open.
 
93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The labels used in this flight of Barolo are very intuitive, as the shade of orange used in the printing grows darker to correspond with the tasting order of increased structure and concentration. A release of about 6,000 bottles, the M. Marengo 2017 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is presented in a medium-orange color, telling you it is a degree lighter than the Brunate but a degree heavier than the classic Barolo. The wine shows wild berry fruit, sour cherry, dried violet and lilac, with dried licorice root and aniseed. You'll notice the tannins, especially if this wine is tasted too young, so give it time.
