Foraging in Piemonte


4. Insider's Tip

From left, Traditional Barolo wines Ca D’ Morissio; Azienda Agricola Falletto.   

Traditional Barolo wine is a dying breed but exquisite stuff. Think pressed rose petals, suede, and a touch of white truffle. Order the best you can afford with at least ten years of age from any of these producers: Giuseppe Rinaldi, Bartolo or Giuseppe Mascarello, Bruno Giacosa, Teobaldo Cappellano, or Livia Fontana. Cutting costs? Look for 2002 Nebbiolo, most likely declassified Barolo.
