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 »

  • Mascarello Bartolo Barolo 1998

    Snoothrank:

    5/2009, ein großartiger Wein, in perfekter Balance zwischen weichen Tanninen, pflaumigem Background, Waldbodenaromen, Lakritze und einer winzigen Teerspur. Ungewöhnlich rund, fast feminin im Abgang, ungewöhnlich dunkle Farbe. Neben einem Icardi Barbaresco 2000 von einem "Bordeauxspezialisten" auf Grund der Komplexität als großer Bordeaux missint...

  • Massolino Barolo Vigna Rionda Ris 1999

    Snoothrank:

    After 4 hours of decanting the 1999 Vigna Rionda explodes from the glass with aromas of Menthol, Black cherry liquor, new leather and tobacco. On the palate, wild berries at first that swells to sweet red fruit on the mid palate, however, it remains quite angular and finishes with an earthy minerality and tart raspberry. The tannins are still up... Read More
