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).
Piedmont has undergone many landlords. It was first settled by the Celtics, then the Greeks, then the Romans, then the marauding Read more »

  • Costa di Bussia Barolo Campo Dei Buoi 2001


    Absolutely delicious! A superb value in a beautiful Barolo. If you can find this wine, this vintage, and you like Barolo (or Nebbiolo in general) buy it. Bulgarian roses seduce you on the nose. Lovely earthy complexity blends with beautiful balanced fruit on the palate. A great wine. Read More

  • 20 Dolcetto d'Alba Enzo Boglietti 2007


    While the name means 'little sweet one' this is one of the great dry wines of NW Italy. Vibrant in color and in flavor this is all about grapey freshness and youth. Share one with your 'dolcetto' Read More

  • A. Fantino Barolo Vigna Dardi Riserva 2001


    Nice for evening meal but could be characterized as "sleeping beauty" - had some signs of potentially good wine but overall was lucking vigour. I was expecting more from Barolo :( Nothing particular on nose and palate, short after-taste. Drink it and forget it! Read More

  • Ca Rome Barolo Rapet 2001


    Unfortunately the bottle had an oxidation problems (my opinion) although the cork seemed in good condition. Wine couldn't show all its character and silently died in the glass. Hate to encounter moments like this :( Read More

  • Silvano Bolmida Barolo Bussia 2001


    Wonderful! With complex nose, palate was one of the most balanced again of the recently tasted barolos - ripe fruit in balance in mid-palate in balance with tar & minerals in the aftertaste. Very long length. Overall - outstanding wine. Great concentration of fruit, balanced flavours and very judicious use of oak (it's reserva). A barolo couldn'... Read More

  • Renato Ratti Nebbiolo Barolo Marcenasco 2005


    Very overrated wine by wine spectator reviewer JS- have to wonder if he actually tasted the bottles availabel in the US. Very nice nose, medium to thin body, straightforward one deminsional finish. Better with food, not a stand alone wine. Read More
