Welcome to Vinoteca Centro Storico! This is where the infamous Ciccio works, a man who also goes by the name Alessio. He is said to have the best champagne list outside of France, and I don’t think that is far from the truth.
Apart from his excellent taste in Champgane, you also get really good food, a freindly staff and a great wine list. Ciccio’s wife also works there, and the two of them have created a marvelous restaurant. There is room for everyone, not just the regulars that have accumulated over the years.
And more often than not, Ciccio does something crazy, like offer a blind tasting of a 1978 Barbaresco, Albino Rocca. If you’re lucky you will witness or even take part in these crazy shenanigans, and have a good story to tell your friends. You will also often run into winemakers from the area, who are there to enjoy a meal or have a quick drink with Ciccio.
Centro Storico is located in Serralunga, in the center, (Via Roma 6). You can call them at +39 0173 613203. They are closed Monday.
We spent a week in Piedmonte last year and LOVED it!
Wonderful! I think Piemonte is my favorite place on earth!
my Italian Pizzaiolo drink a albino rocca 1978 babaresco with me. Ist the same bottle you attached you post. It was amazing and I search the whole Internet, buts a bit difficult to get more information about the bottle. Do you have any infomation (where to buy, price, scores etc.)?
Hello, Have you asked Albine Rocca? You can send an email to the winery, maybe they know. Where are you located? Some US websites have it I think, like Rare Wine Co and Wine Searcher. Hope that helps.
