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 »

I really liked that wine in Piemonte, which my notes reminded me of, so there it was at $30, and I bit.  Also picked up a 2008 Martinelli Gravel Lens Syrah for $29 and a bottle of Elijah Craig 12 year old, my usual bourbon.  (Neat--on ice, I'm not very discerning, but ...

  • Funny thing is I was just looking at my notes from my trip to Piemonte in 2014 and realized I had forgotten how good that Barale is.  But I just bought my month's max of Barbaresco (that Ugo Lequio Gallina--I love the wines from that vineyard) for the reasonable price of $32.  I'm planning my return trip in 2017, and I hope Barale is on the agen...
