I recently interviewed Danilo Drocco, winemaker at the historic Fontanafredda estate in Serralunga d’Alba in the heart of the Barolo zone. Below is the initial text from the interview for wine-searcher.com

I was born in the area, in a little village near Alba – Rodello is the name. It is a little south of Alba.
