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 »

  • Rocca Felice Nebbiolo d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Garnet color with quite a bit of light coming through. Tart nose of, more than anything else, red cherries. Fairly light on the tongue. Light berry flavor. The most telling characteristic is acid. Moderate level of tannin. Lightness and acid tartness makes this an easy drinker. Read More

  • Rosa Dell 'Olmo Barbaresco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Red fruit and some floral notes on the nose, Red fruited with a high amount of acid and a bit floral on the palate too. Finish is long and very astringent. Bought at Trader Joe's and expected this wine to be more modern in style but this wine needs time. Give it a looong decant or better yet put it on it's side for fifteen more years. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher


  • Yet another example of how Italian wines--even Baroli--can provide relatively ... one of a few really great Piemonte vintages – an “Annata Eccezionale” on Renato Ratti’s seminal vintage chart and the equivalent on many others, and it’s the source of some of the best old Nebbiolo we’ve had. Let’s find out how they’re holding up, by tasting Baro... Read More

  • Gran Passione Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Richly spiced earth and leather aromas with full fruited notes of cherry and raspberry with some bramble fruit. Refreshing acidity and more bold red fruit flavors in the mouth show this has a lot to offer, with a fair bit of earthy spice coming through towards the long, black cherry finish. Read More

    Wine review by martins2002


  • In Piemonte, esp Barolo DOCG, nebbiolo is "only" grown on south facing sites because it is a late ripener and needs the longest growing season.  The rule of thumb is that it's planted in the spots where the snow melts first. so, since we're in the Northern Hemisphere, that means south facing.  As the market for Barolo has taken off, plantings ha...
