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).

  • Giordano Barolo 1998

    Snoothrank:

    Orange peel and Barolo spice. A decent entry-level Barolo that hits its spots, but doesn't impress like a great Barolo should. This 1998 is drinking well now. Read More

  • Giordano Barolo 1998

    Snoothrank:

    An ok Barolo...slightly alcoholic in the mouth...did not let it breathe much and probably should have. Dried fruit and spice. Not the most elegant, but also not terribly expensive. Read More

  • Rosa Regale Brachetto d'Acqui 2004

    Snoothrank:

    A very tasty sweet wine, perfect for complementing desserts or alone after a meal. If you don't like the dessert-type wine, this will not be for you. My family often enjoys this one at special celebrations. It's perfect for a toast! Read More
