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).

This spent 1 year in barrique one third of which was new, 1/3 second passage, and 1/3 third passage.There is serious intensity here on the nose with rose, hickory, menthol and tobacco notes framing very fresh red fruits and sappy, vegetal floral tones.

Cedary and complex if evolved and a little spearminty. Very soft in the mouth, fluid and easy if slightly drying with licorice tinged dried fruit notes and a hint of rainier cherry. T... Read More
