To understand Palladino, please try the following: Open a Palladino Barolo at 9:30 am and pour into a decanter. Pour yourself a taste at 10:00, 12:00, 3:00, 5:00, 7:00, and 10:00 pm. Please save a small glass for next morning's breakfast. At this point, you will fully appreciate the wines of Palladino, but more importantly, the greatness of Serralunga. If your spouse objects, please refer to this page... or have that person call me at 415.505.4638. Salute!
