Cellar Series #14 -
The Barolo of Palladino and Serralunga!
We are very excited to announce our next Cellar Series tasting featuring the wines of Palladino. Azienda Vinicola Palladino sits nestled in the town of Serralunga d'Alba, in the heart of Barolo, one of Italy's premier wine-making regions. The Serralunga (long ridge) commune has a distinct reputation within the Barolo towns, not only being the most southeast of the Langhe hills and furthest from the Tanaro river but also having the oldest soil composition (calcarous clay) giving the wines great elegance and structure.
The Palladino winery sits in the center of the village, with a castle perched high above that dates back to the 14th century. Palladino is one of the oldest wineries in Serralunga d'Alba, dating back to 1870. The winery was purchased by the Palladino cousins, Maurilio (winemaker) and Mauro in 1978. Since then they have completely restored and remodeled the winery and added the most advanced cellar equipment while maintaining their 'classic approach' to winemaking. We will be joined by Veronica Santerno, niece of winemaker and owner Maurillo Palladino, who will guide us through the distinct terroir of Serralunga and the resulting wines. We will taste through seven wines four of which will be Barolo!
Light snacks will be offered to cleanse the palate, along with regional cheeses, but not dinner. The wines to be tasted are limited, however there will be deep discounts offered to those in attendance. Seating is also extremely limited, don't miss it. Hope to see you there!
