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. Some fine wines are produced in the North at the foot Read more »

  • Fontanafredda Briccotondo Barbera Piemonte DOC 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Clear cranberry juice coloration and rather oily around the inside of my wine glass. Aromas that are of super concentrated fruits (grape/bing cherry/blackberry/blueberry), along with plummy spice, dry Earthy notes and some alcohol burn. The flavors follow suit and provide a deep, rich fruit-berry profile, with pronounced blackberry, blueberry,... Read More

  • Pertinace Barbera d'Alba 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is the 2015 vintage and the third vintage I've bought from them. Ripe black fruit with balancing acid and a long tart tanninless finish. Nice barbera and nice for a change. Read More

    Wine review by effell


  • Rocca Felice Langhe Rosso Arbat 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is a blend of barbara and nebbiolo and both show through at different times. The nose is nebbiolo but is barbara on entry with sharp acidity and finishes with the classic dryness of the nebbiolo. I really like the blend, just wish it showed more fruit. The search continues. Read More

  • Chionetti Dolcetto Dolcetto di Dogliani Briccolero 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Very opaque beautiful dark plum color. Nose of dark fruit. On the tip of the tongue a nice burst of berry and stone fruit. That quickly diminishes and I get some very serious tannin. This, to me, makes this a grown ups wine. I might like a bit of acid to better balance the tannin, but I do like this wine. Read More
