Maceration with the skins for

lic and malolactic fermentations are natural: no yeast 

nor bacteria are added. The temperature in the cellar 

is raised in order to make the malolactic fermentation 

start. The  wine matures for 24 months in French oak 

barriques (15% new) and it is bottled during the fol-

lowing summer.

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. The first vintage of Barolo to be 

bottled with Le Brunate on the label was 1974 while Barolo Bricco Viole was labelled as such starting from the 1997 vintage.  Marco has 

an extraordinary palate: it was and is quite an experience to taste the wines from the barrels, first in the small and cluttered cellar in the 

town of La Morra and now in the new cellar that was recently built (the first vintage to be vinified there was 2011).  The philosophy of 

Marco is to respect what the vineyards give him as much as possible, the work in the vines is more important to him than the work in the 

cellar.  Apart from the wonderful Barolo Brunate and the Barolo Bricco Viole, Marco also makes a Barolo “base” from four vineyards in 

La Morra, a Dolcetto d’Alba, a Barbera d’Alba (aged for 10 months in French oak barriques), a Nebbiolo d’Alba (from an old vineyard 

in the Roero zone) and a Barolo Riserva.
