Yes, you can find the end of the rainbow in Castiglione Falletto! (photo by Keith Bailey)

Castiglione Falletto & Monforte d'Alba

Share

Of special note: a large group of the excellent wines of Prunotto. The wines that Beppe Colla made at Prunotto (up until 1990 when the Colla family sold to Antinori) are among the best of the region (and therefore among the best wines made in Italy. Or in the world). I think they remain under-appreciated, and accordingly reasonably priced for their consistently very high quality. Jamie Wolff

Bussia. The pink house is Prunotto's tasting room, with Coste di Rose in the background.

Serralunga
We love Serralunga, which, despite the focus of this text, obviously includes many other fine wines in addition to Cappellano; Massolino is very fine. Or 1989 and 1996 Giacosa Falletto Riserva, for example! Three years ago we tasted the 1935 Cappellano Super Barolo. It lived up to its name. But I'm

Mas Coutelou: Puimisson Possible!
Last month Eben and I visted Puimisson, a charming village in the Languedoc north of Béziers, to taste with vigneron Jean-Francois "Jeff" Coutelou. As fans of natural wines, this visit was especially meaningful because Mas Coutelou is one of the first wineries to be certified or

Pairing Wines with a Niçoise Salad
Niçoise salad is a classic dish in France and all around the word. Most French eat this salad during the summer with a glass of wine, relaxing on their patio or terrace. It is a salad that reflects the flavors of the South of France: warmth and generous. Recipes vary among families and localities,

This Must Be the Place - Single Vineyard Champagnes
While much of the art of Champagne is in blending wines, there's much to be said for the individual village character, and to be even more granular, the distinctive character of single-parcel plots. And if you believe each village has its particular shading of terroir expression (and we do), these p

Bel Air-Marquis d'Aligre, Part Three, 1970 - 2010!
We were surprised and happy to see Neil Martin's excellent article about Jean-Pierre Boyer in Vinous, "Last Man Standing: Bel-Air Marquis d'Aligre" (May 30). "Although it is not the most famous or familiar château I will ever write about, Bel-Air Marquis d’Aligre constitutes one of the most importan

Piccoli Produttori Piemontese
As I’ve noted before, we regularly buy from an Italian collector who refers to Dolcetto, Nebbiolo d'Alba, and Barbera “piccoli vini” - or “little wines”. And he also talks about “piccoli produttori” - or “little producers” - by which he means Barolo or Barbaresco which are not from the best-known na
