Marco Marengo makes exciting wines but is still one of those under the radar producers and as a result the wines have tremendous value. After working with his father Mario for years, he finally struck out on his own in 2001 when his father passed away. With his small stock of 6 ha, Marco makes some of the most stylish and characterful wines in the region. From Dolcetto to the fantastic Barolo, Le Brunate - they demonstrate the elegance and drinkability that should define great La Morra wines. The Brunate, for which Marco has built a great reputation, is the jewel in his crown. It is one of the greatest crus in Barolo and the typical La Morra style Barolo with its ethereal perfume and finesse tinged with a complex pleasantness and refined, but powerful tannins. Marco owns two plots 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 absolute maximum of 25% new wood, for 24 months.
