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 »

  • Angelo Negro Barbaresco Basarin 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The nose here seems to be marked with older wood tones of sandlewood, black pepper, balsamic tones and a touch of spicy dried meat. In the mouth this is very nice with sweet and sour cherry fruit, lovely balance and really nice purity. the finish is a little short as the tannins clip the final but this is a very nice and refreshing wine. 88pts Read More

  • Cascina Saria Barbaresco DOCG 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Somewhat nutty on the nose with spicy woody tones and grapevine clipping notes in a perfumed and slightly fruit vein. Nice rich fruit up front, a touch simple but pure with nice mineral tones and crisp tannins buffered by slightly bitter wild cherry fruit. May not make old bones but one to drink over the next 10 years. 90pts Read More

  • Castello di Neive Barbaresco Santo Stefano 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Very sweetly fruited on the nose with lots of pipe tobacco and sweet cherry fruit cut by nuanced mineral and spice tones. The palate is also full of sweet fruit with abundant tannins that are round and polished adding a very fresh feel to this youthful wine. Nicely balanced for future development. 91pts Read More

  • Piazzo Barbaresco 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and herbal on the nose with a really engaging note of sharp roasted raspberry and sandy herbal notes. I really enjoy this style of bouquet. In the mouth this is balanced and juicy with ripe fruit backed up by crunchy fruit tannin and a lovely, long finish with bright, fresh fruit tones. 91pts Read More
