The Marengo family has pulled away from the pack, thanks to the exceptional 2013 Barolo Brunate. This is a seriously stunning wine, and I highly recommend it to those who are looking to expand their Barolo horizons. Grapes are harvested from the La Morra portion of the Brunate cru, and this estate owns just one of the 25 hectares that make up the entire vineyard designate. Wines from Brunate are always more austere and complex, and they show a unique sense of grounded tannic firmness that is also slightly sweet and yielding at the same time. This wine builds power as it sits in the glass. It will look forward to a long aging future ahead.

So much citrus and floral character on the nose with ripe fruit and stones. Full body, chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Fantastic intensity and power.

A lithe, fluid version, this exhibits rose, strawberry and cherry flavors, with a hint of licorice. Very delicate for a Barolo, reflecting both the region and the vintage. Delivers a long finish and refined tannins. Best from 2022 through 2036. 500 cases made.
