The Paolo Manzone Barolo Meriame comes from vineyards in the cru Meriame in the comune (municipality) Serralunga d'Alba in Barolo. Paolo Manzone owns a large part of the vineyards in Meriame. The oldest vines are 70 years old and therefore extremely suitable for producing typical Meriame wines. He uses the grapes from the oldest vines from the most beautiful plots to make the very noteworthy Barolo Meriame. In his Barolo Serralunga d'Alba, Paolo Manzone also only uses grapes from Meriame, whose vines are about 25 years old.

The vineyards are located at an altitude of 350 meters and are oriented to the south/southeast. The soil consists mainly of clay and limestone. The oldest vines are about 70 years old. The fermentation of the noble Nebbiolo grapes takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged for 24 months in wood, at least 50% of which in large Slavonian wood casks (1,500 litres) and the rest in French tonneaux (350 litres), 30% of which are new.

In the glass the Paolo Manzone Barolo Meriame is ruby red with in the nose dark cherries, dried fruit, coffee, rose petals, tar and vanilla.
In the mouth, the Meriame has a full, powerful taste, the fruit, tannins and wood are nicely balanced. Delicious with charcuterie, for example bresaola, salami and spicy sausage. Also delicious with a stew with beef and mushrooms.

Meriame is the Barolo cru on the rise. The popularity of the cru Meriame is relatively new. Paolo Manzone's eponymous Cascina Meriame certainly played a part in that. He has been making beautiful Barolos since 1999, including a 100% Meriame. Meriame forms a kind of amphitheater that protects the vines from winter frosts and the summer heat. There is always a good balance between heat and humidity. The soils from the Lequio formation are calcareous and provide strength and structure. From the best parts of the cru Meriame, in the middle and top, come substantial wines with an earthy character. The wines from the lower part are more elegant in style.
