The Brunate cru is famously celebrated for its sturdy, well-structured Barolos. The soil is a bit denser and richer here and the wines take on more concentration and power as a result. You’ll recognize aromas of wild berries, almonds, graphite, smoke and cola. The tannins are tight and firm and this wine will last many long years in the cellar.
This is a loaded wine, ripe with aromas of cherry cola, chopped herbs, white chocolate, blackberry and cassis. The aromatic presentation is never overpowering and the wine is in fact delicate and elegant with finely tuned finesse. Pair this Barolo with truffle-stuffed veal roast.
Mario Marengo’s Barolo offers spicy notes of clove and nutmeg at the back of bright berry, cola and coffee. The wine boasts generous fullness and depth thanks to its ripe tannins and long, silky feel. Drink in 5–10 years
This opens with black, inky intensity and generous aromas of ripe fruit, raspberry, plum, moist earth and pipe tobacco. The mouthfeel is earthy and gritty with astringent tannins on the finish. Hold this for 10–15 years.
