Tasting Notes


Maturity:

ABV:
14 %

Notes

Brilliant, vivid flavours, light on its feet, pure and clear yet with great length of flavour. There is a distinctively La Morra character to this, ethereal red berry fruits and fresh herbs, gentle notes of spice and sweet juicy strawberries. A stunningly elegant ‘regular’ Barolo that is a blend of wine from Crus vineyards predominanty in La Morra including Coera, Roncaglie, Boiolo and Fossati. The wine is aged for 24 months in 20% new oak barriques.

Notes
The 2013 Barolo is powerful, dense and sweet, with plenty of succulent red fruit, herb, spice and floral notes. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years, before the slightly vegetal notes that lurk beneath become more apparent than they are today. The 2013 offers only modest depth and complexity in its peer group.

Marco Marengo

Marco Marengo

Marco Marengo makes thrilling wines but is still, just about, one of those under the radar producers and as a result the wines offer tremendous value. After working with his father, Mario, for years he finally went it alone in 2001 when his father passed away. With his small holding of 6ha Marco makes some of the most stylish and characterful wines in the region. From Dolcetto through to the fantastic Barolo, Le Brunate - they display the elegance and drinkability that should define great La Morra wines. The Brunate, for which Marco has gained a great reputation, is the jewel in his crown. It is one of the great cru in Barolo and the quintessential La Morra style Barolo with its ethereal perfume and finesse tinged with a complex earthiness and refined but powerful tannins. Marco owns two parcels of vines ranging from 15 to 70 years old. After a gentle, slow fermentation and maceration, the wines are aged in oak barriques, with an absolutely maximum of 25% new wood, for 24 months.
