‘The 2017 Barolo Brunate shows why this is such a highly-regarded site. Powerful and deep, the 2017 has enough fruit and pedigree to keep the formidable tannins in check. Blue/purplish fruit, spice, leather, licorice and menthol gain volume as the 2017 opens in the glass. This brooding Barolo needs time in bottle, but it is pretty compelling, even in the early going. 2023 - 2032’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94/100

‘With fruit from La Morra, the 2017 Barolo Brunate presents a taut and tight bouquet of candied cherry, violets, orange peel and iron ore. The aromas are fluid and agile, yet they are also quite polished and focused. Indeed, this Brunate offers the greatest degree of complexity and sheer depth in this portfolio from the Marengo family of La Morra. Again, we see those extra tight tannins that are such a common feature of Barolo wines from the hot and dry 2017 vintage. This was a release of 4,800 bottles. 2024 - 2038’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 94/100

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.
