Marengo is one of the smallest estates in La Morra, but Marco Marengo has no inferiority complex. Marengo is privileged to be among the many more famous names who own vineyards in the “Brunate” cru, an immaculately positioned parcel of land that is considered to be one of the grand crus of the Langhe.
The 2008 Brunate is a well-balanced, ample, intense, tannic wine with subtle hint of truffles; A complete and rich Barolo!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93
"The 2008 Barolo Brunate is impressive. Layers of dark fruit, menthol, pine, spices and mint flow effortlessly from this impeccably graceful, polished Barolo. The 2008 Brunate is weightless yet deep in the way only Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo are capable. There is a ton of Brunate character here. Layers of fruit build to an explosive finish that saturates every corner of the palate. This is a fabulous showing from Marco Marengo."
