Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Marco Marengo, Barolo, 2015

An aromatic, fruity La Morra Barolo wit[h a bit of sinew binding the sweet red fruit together. Whilst relatively rich and round, there is life to the fruit. The red berry flavours are infused with fragrant notes of dried rose, finishing on a smooth generous kirsch note. Seductive. A very attractive ‘regular’ Barolo that is a blend of wine from Crus vineyards 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.

Marco Marengo's 2015 Barolo is lovely. Medium in body, gracious and lifted, the straight Barolo is a terrific wine in its peer group. Sweet red fruit and floral notes are front and center in a mid-weight, nuanced Barolo that speaks with a sense of energy. It is a terrific entry-level offering from Marengo. Drink it over the next decade.

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.
