Azienda Vinicola Palladino sits nestled in the town of Serralunga d’Alba, in the heart of Barolo, one of Italy’s premier wine-making regions. The Serralunga (long ridge) commune has a distinct reputation within the Barolo towns, not only being the most southeast of the Langhe hills and furthest from the Tanaro river but also having the oldest soil composition (calcarous clay) giving the wines great elegance and structure.
The Palladino winery sits in the center of the village, with a castle perched high above that dates back to the 14th century. Palladino is one of the oldest wineries in Serralunga d’Alba, dating back to 1870. The winery was purchased by the Palladino cousins, Maurilio (winemaker) and Mauro in 1978. Since then they have completely restored and remodeled the winery and added the most advanced cellar equipment while maintaining their ‘classic approach’ to winemaking.
