Wine AdvocateDrink Date 2018 - 2035 Reviewed by Monica Larner Issue Date 30th Jun 2017 Source 231, The Wine Advocate The 2013 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a delicious expression from a lesser-known vineyard that is declared by only three producers including Marco Marengo. This estate produces 5,500 bottles from one hectare of vines. Like Marco's other Barolo wines, this one is fermented with ambient yeasts and undergoes malolactic fermentation in small oak barrel. The wine is aged in new (only 20%) and neutral oak for two years before release. This expression shows excellent depth and generosity with lively fruit flavors that wrap thickly over the palate. This is a complete and centered expression that makes a loud and positive impact, but ultimately follows through with extreme elegance and grace.
