Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Marco Marengo, Barolo, 2016

An elegant and very fresh Barolo. Juicy fruit accompanied by complex woody spices, notes of cedar and sandalwood. There is an alpine purity and vitality to the tight winter berry fruit. Pretty, lifted and quite tense, crunchy fruit. A very attractive ‘regular’ Barolo that is a blend of wine from cru 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 2016 Barolo is forward, succulent and very easy to like. Sweet tobacco, orange peel and exotic spice notes give the straight Barolo lovely aromatic complexity to play off its mid-weight structure. This is such a pretty and expressive entry-level offering. Juicy, open-knit and inviting, but with good tannic grip beneath that gives the wine its sense of energy.

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.
