Brand Ca' Rome'

Ca’ Rome’ was established in 1980 by Romano Marengo, a simple, honest man with a great passion for wine, grapevines and his native land. This family-run winery is the realization of one his biggest dreams: after spending 30 years working in the wine industry, his dream became a reality he now shares with his wife Olimpia, and children Giuseppe (known as Pino), Paola, and Maria.

Romano taught them his methods, passing on his ways of thinking and his main objective: the production of quality wine. Giuseppe continues his father’s efforts, carefully managing every phase of production, beginning with the selection of the grapes from historic vineyards owned by the family and located in Barbaresco and Serralunga d’Alba, the latter having been inherited from grandmother Maria di Brün. Paola manages the sales side with tireless energy and a smile that comes from an innate optimism. The passion with which she transmits the family’s values – quality, honesty, respect for tradition, exploration, and an international air – and the company’s mission is immense. 

Olimpia, extraordinarily dynamic, is cultured, practical, and embodies the soul of the family she dedicated her life to, which is also reflected in the cellar and the products. Today Ca’ Rome’ covers 17 acres under vine, managed by the Marengos. The vineyards are partly located at Barbaresco, partly at Serralunga d’Alba, in Barolo territory. There are three crus: the Rabajà cru, the Rio Sordo cru, famous for Barbarescos of great finesse, and, in Barolo territory: the Serralunga cru, renowned for structure and magnitude. 

This Barolo Cerretta has an intense garnet red color with rich fruit, licorice, rose and violet with light toasty notes. Full and dry on the palate with soft, velvety tannins. Because of its structure and body, it pairs well with meat, game and cheese. Serve at a temperature of 17 °C (62.6 °F).

The 2017 Barolo Cerretta is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, lavender, sage,mint and licorice bring out a darker, more muscular side of Nebbiolo. Firm, driving tannins add to an impression of gravitas and power. Even with all its tannic clout, the Cerretta is endowed with terrific balance and class. This is impressive.

With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the Ca' Rome' 2017 Barolo Cerretta is textured and rich, keeping in line with the characteristics of the vintage. You get dark cherry and baked plum with plenty of spice, tilled earth and even a touch of truffle oil. The vintage heat takes away from the freshness of the aromas, but this wine is amply textured and persistent. About 8,000 bottles were made.
