Dinner with Barolo

Vintner/Sommelier Alberto Taddei talks nebbiolo and food with Alessio Cighetti of Centro Storico in Serralunga d'Alba.

• Alessio Cighetti is the legendary host at Centro Storico, his hilltop wine bar in Serralunga d'Alba, where guests enjoy his collection of Champagne and Piedmont wines with local fare.

• Alberto Taddei makes wine at his family's estate, Selvagrossa, in Le Marche. His career as a sommelier took him to Enoteca Pinchiorri in Tuscany and Falai in New York City—both famed for their wine lists.
