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 »

  • Mascarello Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2006


    A wonderful nose of wild flowers and strawberries is not complex but pure and penetrating. Rich and relatively powerful in the mouth with sapid acidity helping to frame absolutely lovely fruit that has a bit of a muscular quality to it but remains so juicy and fresh. Great length on the finish and really great nebbiolo. 2009-2017 90pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Langhe Freisa Toetto 2004


    A touch dank and earthy on the nose with a spicy tone, some heat and gamy animal notes. Round with sweet fruit in the mouth, fine austere tannins support the sour red berry fruit and lead to a long finish which is a touch drying. 86pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Mascarello Dolcetto d'Alba 2006


    Lots of grapefruit on the nose here over a core of smoky, tarry, sweet pipe tobacco with nuanced notes of spicy black plum. Thickish in the mouth with plush black plum fruit supported by round, supple tannins and a bit of dark earth. This reveals a bit of black raspberry on the cleansing finish. 88pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Renato Ratti Barbera d'Alba Torriglione 2005


    Almost totally opaque purple-red in colour, the nose is powerful and is filled with aromas of cherries and other red berries, mocca and hints of vanilla. The mouthfeel is soft and balanced, but it's dense and there is quite a body. The tannins represent very good Italian structural balance. Holds for quite long, with fine dark fruit on the finis...

  • Barbera d'Asti DOC la Luna E I Falò 2006


    Mencia eh? First time trying this grape and it is worth trying again. Light plum and licorice with a hint of tobacco and earth. Nicely balanced with a pleasant mouth feel and an okay finish. Bit tannic and rusty but good for the $13 (on sale from $17.99 at BC liquor stores). Read More
