Brunate – the Marco Marengo version

Ever tried Marengo’s Brunate?

Brunate is one of my favorite crus, and the fact that Marengo produces it just makes it even better. The vineyards is composed of sandy soils with southern exposure, located in the zones of Barolo and La Morra. Last year I had the 1988, and let me just say that the 2010 can be stored away for about 30 more years! Not saying that the 2010 isn’t good now, just way too young!
