The Marengo family is a small producer based in La Morra, Piedmont and has been producing Barolo since 1899. Their 1.5 ha block of Brunate, planted in 1950, represents an incredible one-quarter of their vineyard holdings! The farm is now run by Marco, very successfully, totally on his own 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.

Tasting notes:
'Nebbiolo from the Valmaggiore vineyard in Roero is quickly becoming one of my Italian wine passions. Only a handful of Piedmont producers make wine here and one of them is the Marengo family. The vineyard parcel belonged to Eugenia Marengo's (Marco's wife) family. Valmaggiore has dramatically vertical slopes that would be terraced in any other part of the world in order to make working here easier. For whatever reason, terraces were never built here, making for dangerously slippery conditions during rain. The 2016 Nebbiolo d'Alba Vigna Valmaggiore sees fruit sourced from 60-year-old vines. This wine offers an excellent starting point for those who want to taste the special Valmaggiore Nebbiolo. Keeping in character, this wine delivers a unique aromatic profile with dried violets and herbs. The mouthfeel shows deep complexity and brilliant freshness.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 93/100
