’The 2017 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a powerful, driving wine. All the signatures of this site are amplified in 2017. There is plenty of that distinctive red berry fruit but the tannins are also pretty imposing. It will be interesting to see where this goes. 2022 - 2035’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93/100

‘The labels used in this flight of Barolo are very intuitive, as the shade of orange used in the printing grows darker to correspond with the tasting order of increased structure and concentration. A release of about 6,000 bottles, the M. Marengo 2017 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is presented in a medium-orange color, telling you it is a degree lighter than the Brunate but a degree heavier than the classic Barolo. The wine shows wild berry fruit, sour cherry, dried violet and lilac, with dried licorice root and aniseed. You'll notice the tannins, especially if this wine is tasted too young, so give it time. 2024 - 2038’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 93/100

Producer information The Marengo family is a small producer based in La Morra, Piedmont and has been producing Barolo since 1899. Their 1.5 hectare block of Brunate, planted in 1950, represents an incredible one-quarter of their vineyard holdings. The farm is currently run by Marco, after his father, Mario passed away in 2001. The philosophy of Marco is to respect what the vineyards give him, as much as possible. The work in the vines is more important to him than the work in the cellar.
