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 »

  • Azienda Agricola l'Armangia Piemonte Albarossa Macchiaferro 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Nice Italian red made from the Albarossa grape (cross between Nebbiolo di Dronero or Chatus and Barbera). Loads of ripe dark fruit on the nose with a hint of licorice and shoe polish. On the palate is ripe blackberry, blueberry pie, a touch of smoke, medium grained tannins, medium acidity and a somewhat long finish. This is opening up nicely ... Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Barbaresco Bordini 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Cherry and raspberry aromas are fairly pronounced. Tart and focussed on the palate, with very strong tannins gripping the palate and not letting go. The flavor profile carries cherry flavors with touches of tar, but there's a good dose of heat that washes away some of the more delicate notes. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Floral syrupy aromas with ripe black cherry on the nose and a hint of licorice. Focussed and tart on the palate, this shows a lot of cranberry and cherry flavors with a fair bit of oak on the finish.87 pts Read More

  • Giuseppe Cortese Dolcetto d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nice easy-drinking wine. Not over-the-top with fruit, but there are some red berry hints and even a suggestion of mint. Typical acidity that I usually see in Italian wines. More a food wine than a sipper. Also, a drink now wine. I see no reason to dedicate wine storage space for this one. Read More
