Tasting Note:

Such is the consistency of this vineyard that even in extreme years such as 2017, its character and class shine through. This offers that classic “Brunate” mix of bright small red berry fruits woven into earthier spice undergrowth and autumn leaf characteristics. With its toned power, ethereal fragrance and nuance there is pedigree and nobility to this - focused, gripping and firmly backboned but generous enough to show its complexity and length. There is a nod to the vintage, no more than that, with a thin layer of open knit lush fruit and mocha cladding the vertical spine of this wine but above all it is the vineyard that speaks. A beauty. One of the top Cru vineyards of Barolo, situated high up in the La Morra commune. Marengo's parcel of Brunate, situated at 350 metres altitude, has been owned by his family since 1903 and the vines average seventy years old. Aged in 25% new oak barriques for 24 months.
