Review

A small family business of La Morra, now managed by Marco, Marengo operates on the basis of simple but solid principles of style and sustainability. The work is centered on an integrated management of the vineyards and on the reduction of interventions in the cellar. The style, between strength and territorial expressiveness, is based on the realization of elegant and fruity wines, with short macerations and refinements in small wood.

It is always confirmed a sample of the municipality and of the whole denomination, for quality / price ratio, the Marengo vintage Barolo, knows how to perfectly express the character of the pure Nebbiolo. After vinification this wine matures for about 36-48 months of which at least 20 in Slavonian oak barrels; then rests in the bottle for about 6 months before being put on the market.

At the sight it has a bright red color with shades that vary to garnet in youth, with the passage of time it becomes ruby red with orange reflections. Fruity notes of ripe fruit alternate with floral scents and spicy aromas deriving from aging; going to compose a rich and intense aromatic bouquet. The taste is dry in the mouth and particularly pleasant. Ideal with tasty meat dishes, such as roasts, braised meats and stewed game. Excellent with mature cheeses.

nice barolo

Red fruits, leather, oak, light duft. Red fruits, med tannins, jammy, herbs and a little spice. Not so heavy! Longer aftertaste- get some!

Il re dei vini !

Vin rouge puissant aux puissants arômes de fruits rouges avec une légère note florale. Le 2015 est à conserver si on résiste à la tentation de le boire !

L’Italie en bouteille

Ce Barolo fait honneur à ce terroir du Nord de l’Italie. La magie de ce monocépage (Nebbiolo) le rapproche des meilleurs Bourgognes dont il s’inspire !

The Winery, strictly family-run, is a unique property created by the Marengo family in 1899 which is now very successfully managed by Marco in tandem with his wife Eugenia all on his own after his father Mario passed aw ay in 2001. The vineyard is only 7 hectares. The work is centred on the integrated management of vineyards and reduced cellar intervention. The style, placed between territorial strength and expressivity, is based on the production of elegant and fruity wines ...
