Marco Parusso is not a winemaker like the others. Perceived as a "modernist", he nevertheless claims to bring back up to date ancient practices that he discovered in very old writings. For some years now, he has been following a road that he is the only one to tread in the Langhe. But it doesn't matter to him. For the man assumes his originality. But before we look at the style of the estate, let's talk a little about its history and the current team... The Parusso family began cultivating vines between the two wars. The first sale of wine in bottles - and under their own label - was with the (great) 1961 vintage. At the beginning, the estate consisted of only two hectares, in the Bussia and Mariondino crus. Following in his father's footsteps, Marco Parusso, who was not initially destined for the wine business, finally decided to study oenology in Alba. He graduated in 1986 and became part of the generation of famous Barolese who made a name for themselves in the 90's, revolutionising the old style of the past.until 1985, the estate produced only one Barolo, blending all the vintages owned. But in 1986, things changed. That year was a bit special, as the vintage suffered a terrible hail in May. But above all, during the winter, the region experienced a scandal involving wines contaminated with methanol, which did a great deal of damage to the vineyards and encouraged many young winemakers to change. In line with this dynamic, the estate intensified the quality and the number of hours worked in the vineyard; this was the beginning of green harvesting. Marco also decided to create a new, more functional cellar. In 1987, his sister joined him to assist him. Today, the estate covers 25 hectares, spread over 17 plots between Monforte and Castiglione Falletto.
