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 »

It's our "house" metodo classico bubbles and rarely does a friend who tries it for the first time in our house not go out and buy some. Excellent value for money under $30 in most places and a popular sparkle... Read More

  • Fontanafredda Barolo Vigna Lazzarito 1998

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice garnet color with a bit of brownish tint along the edges. The nose presents aromas of leather, anise, blackberry and spice box that makes you feel like you've just walked into and old school Italian deli in New York, just what you would expect from a mature Barolo. The taste is just wonderful, a brief blast of ripe fruit up ... Read More

  • "Why do people buy current release wines, mostly Cali cabs and Bordeaux, ... the increasing popularity of Piedmont wines that we've all contributed to, I think you can add Barolo/Barbaresco to the list of wines where newly released infants are far more expensive than properly aged and ready-to-drink bottles.OT, if you know what to look for (li...

  • We've got a nice email going out tomorrow on a pair of 2004 Barolos. Two of the best wines were from the village of Serralunga, heck three of them were but only 2 are still available at retail. I was very impressed with the wines as a group, which is not surprising since these are wines that I bought for myself, but I just wanted to give every...
