This historic estate, dating back to the mid-1800s, is run by Manuel Marchetti, who is maintaining the family’s dedication to tradition and quality. The estate was the very first in the area to designate single vineyards on its labels, as early as the 1950s and their range of classic Piedmontese wines offers both typicity and value. 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 La Serra is understated elegance, softer and rounder, with velvet-wrapped intensity.
The Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo are grown within the estate's original nucleus, high on the rolling terroir of La Morra: two celebrated, contiguous crus, Brunate and La Serra. The building itself (adjoining a medieval tower) goes back to the 1700s: the cool, ancient underground cellars provide an ideal environment for the wines’ classic élevage. The exceptional vineyards – all estate-owned – are the true heart of the winery. The superb locations, steepness of the slopes and nature of the terrain, exposure to the sunlight, exceptional microclimate, are not only conducive to top wines, but to non-aggressive, natural vineyard management.
