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 »

You had Burgundy and Piedmont, and it's not even clear that the wines of Piedmont were always monovarietal, but most places in Europe made blends.So it's really kind of a brand new thing to be finding monovarietal Kékfrankos and I'm not sure anyone has really figured it out yet....

  • Azelia Barolo DOCG 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is my second bottle of this in the last year, or so. Interesting tinges of brown in the glass. That surprises me a bit. Very light on the fruit on entry to the mouth. Overriding flavors/sensations are dust, tobacco and tannin. Tannin notwithstanding, not as full-bodied as I might have expected. Quite tart on the back of the palate. ... Read More
