Winemaker Notes

Cantina Palladino is in Serralunga d'Alba, the 'long greenhouse' of the Langhe, the perfect area for the cultivation of the Nebbiolo grape. The hills of Palladino offer a favorable microclimate for vine cultivation, with calcareous-clayey soil and optimal sun exposure.

The Barolo Parafada grapes are grown in soil enriched with a small percentage of sand, giving it an elegant and refined note. Intense and fragrant, on the nose the bouquet features balsamic and spicy notes. The palate has structure and balance, strong in character but not without elegance.

The Story

Being one of the few women winemakers, Veronica has had to fight to prove herself in Barolo, even to her partners who are both male, including her uncle. But what she has achieved with the wines even Maurilio, her uncle, will say is nothing short of amazing.

Most of you think of Barolo as a big, tough guy that needs years before he can be appreciated. Then, in walks Parafada - with all her elegance, beauty, complexity and depth, her roundness and her edges. She's ready to be taken out now, or like any great relationship, she'll endure the test of time.

If you have never drank a Barolo, this Parafada would absolutely be the perfect one to start with - although, you'll be pretty spoiled. Like most of the great artisans in Barolo, Palladino agrees that wines should be able to stand the test of time but also not have to wait to be drunk. Be sure to have some protein around to soften the tannins if you open it in its youth - a nice filet, t-bone steak or some aged Parmigiano Reggiano.
