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).

  • Pianpolvere Soprano Barolo 1999


    Drank a bottle of this at Del Posto in NYC. This was my long awaited entry into Barolo and good god.... Give me more! On the nose were floral aromas of violets and roses to go with notes of fig and faint leather. Fills the mouth wonderfully with a long finish. Read More

  • Cascina Adelaide Barolo 2004


    I can't really recommend this. I feel like this wine will be stuck in an eternal cycle of being ageworthy where it will never age well. Nothing of note, just dull and oaky. Read More

    Tasted this along side 1982 Giacosa Faletto Barbaresco. great cherries and smoke. drinking perfectly now. i wouldn't wait. Faletto was tighter on the palette and lacked the fruit. Buy it if you can find it. Read More
