Family owned and run by the fourth generation, the property sits right between Monforte d’Alba and Castiglione Faletto. The keywords here are maturity and exotic aromatics – they harvest as late as possible while still retaining elegance. New oak barrels with a very low toast are used as they believe that new wood is full of oxygen. Their basic Barolo is a blend of the youngest vines from all their sites; the next level is the Mariondino – Parusso are the only vineyard holders here who make a single vineyard wine. The Le Coste dei Monforte and the Bussia are bigger and more classically structured.
