Alan Manley is a native New Yorker who is living out every Piedmont nerd's fantasy making wine with Maria Teresa at Cantina Bartolo Mascarello. He also makes wine under his own label (from vines he owns or leases), and this is just his second commercial release. He told us that he does everything exactly the same as at Mascarello, except, of course, that the vineyard sources are different (BM's wines are made exclusively from the Commune of Barolo and La Morra; Alan's from the other three major Barolo villages of Serralunga, Castiglione and Monforte), and there are all the little adjustments you have to make to reflect the conditions on hand -- adjustments that the Mascarellos have had multiple generations to perfect and Alan is just getting started.
