The Winery, strictly family-run, is a unique property created by the Marengo family in 1899 which is now very successfully managed by Marco in tandem with his wife Eugenia all on his own after his father Mario passed aw ay in 2001. The vineyard is only 7 hectares. The work is centred on the integrated management of vineyards and reduced cellar intervention. The style, placed between territorial strength and expressivity, is based on the production of elegant and fruity wines with short maceration times and ageing in small wood.
The Barolo, yet again, a top-notch common and full appellation, due to its value for money, its rich and precious aroma, with notes of red fruit, herbs, incense, toast and jams, and a palate that is uncompromisingly juicy, harmonious, tasty.
Alongside this minor masterpiece we have the gretest Brunate, garnetty and austere, dense and mellow, with an aroma reminiscent of black cherry and raspberry, jammy strawberry, hay, herbs, mint and liquorice. On the palate it is full bodied and opulent, with polished tannins and great persistence, the result of extraordinary eighty year old vines.
Extremely expressive and territorial, the Bricco delle Viole, dark garnet in colour, elegant and refined with its aroma of fruit and spices, with subtle echoes of herbs, roots, cherry , undergrowth, liquorice and mint. The palate is proportionate and balanced, it has a vivid but partially integrated tannin, and a long, tasty, satisfying finish.
