Wine maker notes
The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from 60 yearold vines situated on the south- and southeast- facing slope of a hill near the village of Serralunga, at about 250 to 300 meters, in the heart of the Barolo-producing region. The soil is a mixture of clay and calcerous limestone, which is not fertile, but perfect for the Nebbiolo grape, and the vineyards are protected from wild variations of temperature and weather by the amphitheater “bowl-like” shape of the terrain. After hand-picking, the free-run juices are stocked in vertical stainless steel vats. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures with masceration on skins taking place over approximately 14 days. The wine is then matured in large French oak barrels for years.

Food pairing
This wine is a perfect accompaniment red meats and roasts, game and truffle-flavored dishes, as well as with mature cheeses.

Gianpaolo Manzone is the sixth generation of his family involved in the wine industry in the heart of the legendary Piedmont region. Before Gianpaolois father Armando started making Barbara diAlba, Nebbiola diAlba and Dolcetto diAlba in 1970 in the village of Sinio, the family were well-known farmers and grape-growers. In 1999, Gianpaolo bought vineyards in Serralunga diAlba and began production of a Barolo Meriame and Barolo Serralunga. The age of the vineyards in Sinio have an average age of 20 to 25 years, while vines from the Serralunga property range from 25 to 60 years old (the grapes from the oldest vines go into the wineryis flagship Barolo DOCG, which are situated in the best part of the famed Meriame area). Gianpolo is the winemaker and vineyard manage for the 10 hectares of vines the family owns in the two towns. In addition to the winery, Paolo Manzone has a country guest house for visitors to the region that sits right in the midst of their vineyards. Cascina Meriame has five recently-renovated rooms, with private baths, and each one named after a local flower.
