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 »

  • Via Collina Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A joyous vibrancy, a lightness that lifts the brooding, deep flavours of the well-flavoured pasta sauce. Lifts is perhaps the wrong word. The wine counters the deep autumnal flavours of the sauce with a burst of freshness and red berry and cherry flavours. Medium-bodied, simple, fresh flavours, reasonably good length.http://www.spittoon.biz/via_... Read More

  • Bartolo Mascarello Barbera d'Alba 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A big an juicy wine with crisp acidity. Cherry and roses on the nose with a hint of barnyard that keeps it rustic. Cranberry and cherry fruit with mushroom and an earthy fresh finish. Drinking this is like sipping a refreshing glass of (not too sweet) punch on a summers day. This may not be what I expected from the bottle but it sure is fun. Read More

  • Carretta Roero Arneis Cayega 2007

    Snoothrank:

    My first Arneis. A little too much heat for me, but behind the heat is some nice "cloudiness" with apricot hints and even some mint. I would not buy again at this price point. Read More
