Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Marco Marengo, Barolo, Brunate, 2014

After the darker Bricco Viole, this is a return to the red fruit nose more typical of wines from La Morra. Complex but with some allure now already, sweet and freshly-scented red berries mixed with woody spices. The palate is gripping, crisply-defined and tense yet there is a certain warmth and generosity, too. Captivating and moreish and brilliantly complete Barolo of both force and finesse. One of the top Cru vineyards of Barolo, situated high up in the La Morra commune. Marengo's parcel of Brunate is 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.

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.
