Shooting for a 2000 trifecta, let’s go to Piedmonte, where the vintage was very successful if not classically structured. That means that Barolo, famed for its persnickety personality and preference for decades of slumber, is actually drinking well at the young age of 12 years. Luigi Pira is a producer in Serralunga, Barolo’s manliest appellation. The Marenca vineyard produces a slightly fruitier style of Serralunga than many vineyards there, perfect for drinking this year and for many years to come.
