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 »

  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Showed bright sour cherry, sage and florist shop on the nose. The palate was full and soft with cherries, cedar and tobacco with a long finish. Just coming to age. Read More

  • Burlotto Neirane Barolo Re 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Yet another happy group of tasters with this wine. Starts out again with explosive black olives that with time stays but also reveals rosemary, mint and potpourri. On the palate, tonight's bottle was a bit drying with its tannin but still showed through with sour cherry, cranberry and minerals. A bit chewy but this wine has so many qualities tha... Read More

    This wine gives me goose bumps. First time I had it was in small wine bar in Rome after a lovely day with a close friend & his family. Plums, dried fuits, juicy, complex. Pure velvet. It's what made me start loving wine. Read More

  • Boroli Barolo 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Was a little dry to start with. Definitely needs to sit in a cellar a bit. Still a nice wine with some dark and light fruits to play around with. A little tannic and acidic but that will soften up with age. In a few years I will give this one a better glass rating. Read More
