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 »

  • Castello del Poggio Moscato Moscato d'Asti 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I tasted this wine a few months ago at Olive Garden and it was amazing. My only experiences with wine have been horrible but I loved this one. Our waitress told us we could buy Moscato from companies like Bare Foot at Wal-Mart. I bought a bottle of Bare Foot and Beringer and they didn't taste anything like this, I was so disappointed. I know... Read More

  • Castello del Poggio Moscato Moscato d'Asti 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I am having trouble figuring out which wine is the one that I had at Olive Garden because the bottle at Olive Garden did not say D'Asti on it. Then the ones that do say D'Asti have different years on it and different prices. Does anyone know which one is the exact one from Olive Garden? Read More

    Wine review by Asti Girl


  • Natale Verga Barbera d'Asti 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a nice deep red/purple with a rather vinous aroma. Blackberry is the first flavor to hit the tongue followed by a vinous character with a touch of earthiness. A very smooth barbera that paired beautifully with chicken cacciatore. A solid wine overall. Read More
