Tasting Note:

Very complex and different in style to the regular Brunate – earthier and darker with notes of sweet woody spices and mocha initially, though it does not take too long for the fruit to come out. This feels an entirely different shape to the Brunate more plush and plumptuous even if more layered and deep- less about classical austerity and focus , more engaging and hedonistic- the juicy roundness makes you feel like there is more clay in the soil here. Sophisticated and powerful yet already great fun to drink no. 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.
