Paolo Manzone is one of the leading producers of Barolo. Prior to purchasing and renovating his property in Serralunga d'Alba, in the east of Barolo, Paolo spent many years as a highly respected wine consultant. The focus now is on the underrated single vineyard cru, Meriame, where the family of Paolo's wife, Luisella, have had vineyards for generations, but had previously sold the fruit until Paolo decided to release wines under the family name. Today, this collaboration has raised the profile of the Meriame cru, and Paolo's wines have won widespread recognition. His wines are traditional in style; structured and complex.
