Notes

Sweet spice and floral notes on the nose. A beautiful and accessible palate. A nicely weighted Barolo showing a great balance of fruit, nerve and juiciness. Flavours of red berries, fresh cut flower and red cherry flow readily from the glass. A stunningly elegant ‘regular’ Barolo that is a blend of wine from Crus vineyards predominanty in La Morra including Croera (now known by its wider name Serradenari,) Roncaglie, Boiolo and Fossati. The wine is aged for 24 months in 20% new oak barriques.

Notes
Marengo's 2014 Barolo is an impressive entry-level bottllng. Deep, layered and persistent in the glass, the 2014 has a lot to offer. The inclusion of fruit that often goes into Marengo's single-vineyard wines has boosted quality and resulted in an especially serious, brooding Barolo. I would give this another 6-12 months, or more, to allow the tannins to soften further. Marengo's 2014 is a clear overachiever. Don't miss it.

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.
