About This Wine:

A selection of the finest Nebbiolo grapes, which are left on the vines an extra 15 days for additional concentration. This wine is so special Romano has chosen to dedicate it to his mother, Maria di Brun... who first taught him to make quality a rule, in life and wines. Romano's flagship Barbaresco is magnificently rich, layered, chewy, elegant and flavorful. Solely released in great years. Note: Maria di Brun is pictured on the label.

Tasting Notes:
Incredible concentration and breed. Beautiful, deep garnet color. Very intense, persistent bouquet, complex, ample + elegant, w/notes of violets + brushwood. Full-bodied, velvet texture, hallmark breeding, personality and balance; a deeply satisfying, long. Best decanted at least 1 hr beforehand, and served with rich, structured dishes, red meat, game, seasoned cheeses.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Vinous Media:
Crushed flowers, tobacco, sweet red cherries, kirsch, mint and spices are laced together in the 2011 Barbaresco Maria di Brun, the estate's selection from Rio Sordo. Ca' Rome' gives the Maria di Brun a total of four years in oak, which tend to take with it some of the wine's freshness. Today, the 2011 is tight and unyielding, I don't see the Maria di Brun matching the best 2011s here, but time will tell. (Drink between 2015-2026) - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2014)
