Piemonte Wine

From Asti Spumante to Barolo, the wines of Piedmont are among Italy’s most prolific and best rated. The region’s pedigree is apparent in its 58 DOC and DOCG zones, and although it is only the sixth largest producer in terms of volume, it has the highest percentage of classified wines in all of Italy. No IGT wine area is identified. Piedmont's gently sloping Langhe hills at the foot of the Alps have been rated among the best in the world for red wine production. This westerly region that borders with Switzerland and France is influenced by the Alps and Apennines (the name Piedmont means "foot of the mountain") and its seasons are very distinctive. Hot, dry summers, cold winters, and temperate springs and autumns are common with occasional fog during harvest time. There is a concentration of vineyards around Alba, by the Tanaro river, and others are located in the hills of Langhe and Monferrato in the south east.

  • Fontanafredda Mirafiore Barolo 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Light cherry, moist earth and a hint of mushroom on the nose, lightly floral with notes of clay. Tart, cranberry and red currant fruit with a hint of baking spice, plenty of drying tannins and a smoky tar towards the finish that tails off nicely leaving an earthy, chewy, oaky memory. Read More
