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 with short maceration times and ageing in small wood.
What does this wine taste like?
The Barolo, yet again, a top-notch common and full appellation, due to its value for money, its rich and precious aroma, with notes of red fruit, herbs, incense, toast and jams, and a palate that is uncompromisingly juicy, harmonious, tasty. 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.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
Red fruits, leather, oak, light duft. Red fruits, med tannins, jammy, herbs and a little spice. Not so heavy! Longer aftertaste- get some!
A great Barolo but its not ready yet. It needs more time in the bottle.
high quality Barolo - good value for the price - recommended
Ruby colour with clear rim. Nose is well smoky at first. With complex black and red fruits of cherry, raspberry, Forest floor, mushroom like truffle, spices of nutmeg and licorice. Also a bit of leather and furry note. High acidity, firm tannins with big structure, full bodied.
Como me ocurre con los Brunello de Montalcino, soy un enamorado de esta DOCE. Había leído muy buenas referencias sobre este vino y, efectivamente, así ha sido: es un gran vino. Va bien con todo, aunque lo recomiendo para acompañar una comida abundante.
This wine aged for 36-48 months, at least 20 of which are spent in Slavonian oak casks. It then rests in the bottle for half a year before being released onto the market.
