Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Marco Marengo, Barolo, Brunate, 2004

This really hits the high notes, stunningly attractive and sophisticated, complex powerful and precise but not over the top, this is measured to perfection. Aromas of dried rose petal introduce a palate bursting with intense, ripe cherry and autumn fruit, dancing mineral elements, bitter sweet dark chocolate suggestions and touches of spice. A Benchmark La Morra Barolo. Aged in 30 percent new oak.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous

The 2004 Barolo Brunate is approaching an early plateau of maturity. Deep and pliant on the palate, the 2004 possesses striking depth, fabulous balance and sense of resonance that is hugely appealing. Dried rose petal, sage, mint and crushed raspberries meld into the soft, succulent finish. This is a lovely showing.

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.
