This estate was established by the Marengo family in 1899. Marco Marengo, the present owner, manages it, very successfully, together with his wife Jenny and his son Stefano, a wine technician. The vineyard extension is just 6 hectares, but 1.2 hectares are in Le Brunate, a grand cru of La Morra (and one of the greatest crus of the Langhe area) and 1 hectare is in Bricco delle Viole, one of the main crus of the town of Barolo. These two vineyards have belonged to the Marengo family for five generations. Very enticing with aromas of ripe strawberries, violets, lavender and raspberries that follow through to a full body and very chewy, powerful tannins. Firm and intense. Very spicy in the finish with beautiful fruit. Will evolve over the next 3-5 years.
