This looks pretty perfect, eh?
Don’t sweat it if you don’t follow the Italian narration in this video exposition of the magical little town that is Montelupo Albese–the pictures and video clips speak for themselves. A picturesque village on a hilltop between equally picturesque Rodello and Diano D’Alba, Montelupo has some of the best views of the eastern side of the hills that make up Barolo country. We love it there, and you’ll see why when you watch.
Our thoughts on the Lazenne Wine Check in the video below; a few minor quibbles aside, it really performed admirably! We got thirteen lovely bottles safely home from Piemonte, Friuli, and the Veneto with nary a scratch.
They’re not for sale on Amazon yet in the US, but fear not–if you’re going to be traveling in the EU and want one to take bottles home with you safely, get in touch and we’ll put you in touch with the right folks.
A little video insight into the remarkable cellars at Cantina Francone. Enjoy! Many thanks to Fabrizio Francone, Evan Byrne, and Valeria Quintanilla for our introduction to this fascinating must-taste destination in Piemonte.
