Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Marco Marengo, Barolo, Bricco Viole, 2020

Darker fruited and more serious than the Barolo Classico, the Bricco Viole is assertive, displaying notes of dark plum, raspberry and cool clay. Produced from 70-80 year old vines inherited from Marco’s mother’s side of the family. Bricco Viole is a very fine Barolo vineyard that translates as ‘Top of the Violet Hill’ and is one of highest vineyards in the Barolo commune at 400–450 metres above sea level. Marco's windy, exposed parcel is blessed with a fair chunk of old vines. It is a late-ripening vineyard that produces small intense berries. Compared to Brunate there is a little more clay in soil here. The ageing is the same as for Brunate, 24 months in barriques, with a 15% new oak.

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.
