The village of Serralunga d’Alba, in the heart of Piemonte’s Langhe hills, is renowned for its ripe, powerful, broadly structured wines from the Nebbiolo grape. When aged the required minimum of three years, including at least one and a half years in wood, such wines may be released as Barolo. However, many growers also choose to bottle a fresher, lighter, more approachable expression of the variety under the Langhe Nebbiolo denomination. These reds may be made from higher yielding vineyards and enjoy laxer aging requirements, with no stipulation for time in wood. Local producer Guido Porro crafts his Langhe Nebbiolo from young vines that could make Barolo, but he instead bottles it early to capture its youthful fruit and beautiful, lively perfume. A sort of “baby Barolo,” this red is bright and floral with plush tannins that offer immediate access. Try serving it alongside egg noodles with a slow-cooked ragù to experience it as you might in Serralunga. –Anthony Lynch
