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 »

  • Barbaresco Bric Balin Moccagatta 1999


    A bit reduced on the nose though very cedary with notes of tea and tobacco. Bright and fruity on entry then turning a bit dry and austere across the mid-palate with nice fruit but plenty of wood tannin that comes to dominate the finish. Needs time for the tannin to soften but the wine seems nice if a touch simple. 86pts Read More

  • La Spinona Barbaresco Bricco Faset 1995


    A bit dirty on the nose with lots of tree bark and quinine over the dried earth tones. Nice sweet fruit tone are presented in a rather old school, austere package with a drying edge to the tannins and a touch of dirtiness. Still this is very likable and finishes with dried fruits and sandlewood. 85pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Cascina Delle Rose Barbaresco Rio Sordo 1999


    Very mineral toned on the nose with lots of dried rose, dried meat and slightly smoky, stemmy tones adding a nice herbal essence. A little sweetly fruity on entry then still youthful and aggressive in the mouth with dark medicinal fruit tones that turns to dried raspberries and leads to a moderately long finish with emerging autumnal character. ...

  • Albino Rocca Nebbiolo Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi 1999


    A nose of dried flowers and tobacco is joined by a meaty, cedary, cigar box tone. the tannins here are relatively smooth with just a bit of aggressiveness showing the evolution of the wine. Still fresh with good intensity and length if a touch rustic. 87pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Cigliuti Barbaresco Serraboella 1991


    This opens with rather classic aged notes of soy, nori and dried fruit that gains a bit of orange rind. With air additional notes of tea, iron, leather, aged meat, and dried strawberry fruit all add to the array. The palate has a strong licorice element and nice, if slightly drying tannins. The MP offers nice lift that leads to a dried berry fi... 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

  • 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
