Product Description

This historic estate, dating back to the mid-1800s, is now being run by the fifth generation winemaking team of Luisa and Manuel Marchetti, who are maintaining the family's dedication to tradition and quality. Founded by Luisa's great grandfather, the estate was the very first in the area to designate single vineyards on its labels, as early as the 1950s. Discipline, attention to detail and low yields in their 17 hectares of Langhe vineyards, combined with innovation and modern techniques in the winery, deliver wines that are at once as traditional as they are modern-edged. Their range of classic Piedmontese wines offers both typicity and value. The new Arneis, a variety that has made a comeback from near extinction in the 1970s since its elevation to DOCG status, is delicately aromatic with hints of apple, honey and acacia. The single vineyard La Morra Barolos are from the two celebrated crus of Brunate and La Serra. Brunate is typically muscular with dark fruits and spice and superb longevity, while the La Serra is understated elegance, softer and rounder, with velvet-wrapped intensity. The wines are made the same way: 45 days of maceration in stainless steel and cement, malolactic completed in steel and then two years ageing in large casks. Of the 2005 wines, Antonio Galloni says "these Barolos could be used to teach a class on what greatness truly means when it comes to one of Piedmont's most historic vineyards, Brunate".
