Piedmont Wine

 

The name in Italian means “foot of the mountain,” given its location at the foot of the Alps and the Appenine Mountains. These help to moderate the hot and dry summers, with cool, foggy springs and autumns, and frigid winters. There are a whopping 52 DOC/DOCGs zones, with the most famous being Asti (for both Moscato d’Asti and Asti Spumante), the two Barbera districts, Barbaresco, the six Dolcetto districts, the Freisas, the Grignolinos, Langhe, Monferato and of course, Barolo Chinato. Tradition is the region’s most valued currency, and no other region in Italy, perhaps the world, holds as much importance to tradition in respect to sense of place, methods of viticulture and loyalty to craftsmanship as the Piedmontese. In Piedmont there are no IGT’s (a non-specific regional label with loose standards for ingredients and methods).

  • Another Dolcetto I'd like to experiment with is Elio Grasso's, and really any good Piedmont producer who makes one.I'm doing the same with Barbera. So far Marcarini is the QPR super star, but Giacomo Conterno makes big and structured Barbera worthy of aging, but also at a much higher price. Bartolo Mascarello's was a hedonistic delight, but also... Read More

  • Giacosa Fratelli Barolo Bussia 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Licorice on the Nose and confirmed by the Taster. Classic Ruby/Garnet RED, with growing rustic character. Classic Barolo and 2007. Enjoy now. Best paired with Porcini, truffle and pungent cheese. Vivia Fratelli Bussia Barolo 2007. - William F&B Barolo Read More

  • So Suckling came out and threw some cold water on '10 Barolo yesterday, calling it merely a very good to outstanding vintage! Also mentioning that it's a bit uneven, while encouraging buyers to please "be careful out there". This guy is a walking comedy, but all the better in this case...doesn't need anymore hyping.

  • Thanks all, part two to follow soon.Richard, skewed towards the 2010s, but the more I've tasted the 11s the more impressed I am with them. It's going t be a fruity vintage, but a terrific, fresh, joyous fruity vintage. I'll have a little bit of a better feel for the wines, when we taste them again, but holy cannoli are they delicious!

  • Looking for a reasonable priced Barolo the check out the Renato Ferrero La Moorra Barolo's. Great wine for the price! The 2004 Gattera e Luciani,DOCG is in the $39.- 40. range and is excellent. The higher priced is the 2003 Manzoni, DOCG $65.00 range!
