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 »

  • Villa Giada Moscato d'Asti Andrea 2007


    Crisp, fruity, and an attractive floral nose. The wisteria note is amazing. I feel that the 2007 is the best year followed by 2006. I did not care for 2003 and 2004. Read More

  • Franco M. Martinetti Monferrato Rosso Sul Bric 2005


    The Sul Bric is a lovely fruit forward, easy drinking wine, with moderate grip. It displays a somewhat light ruby center growing lighter with a soft blush red at the edges. It offers an aroma of ripe berries, perhaps a little baked. Theres bright, lively acidity with some, but not a lot of tannin, well integrated. The Barbera flavor is certai... Read More

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Langhe Nebbiolo Il Favot 2003


    A big change from my first tasting. Intense nose of sweet tobacco, clove, mushroom and leather with raspberry fruit hidden beneath. Full bodied with balanced acidity Dark cherries, raisin and earthy notes. Long finish and lots of room for improvement over time. This is one of those glasses of wine that reminds you of what you love about nebbi... Read More

  • Dante Rivetti Barbera d'Alba Mara 2003


    This Rivetti bottling is named after his daughter 'Mara'. It's a big step up from their other Barbera which we found to be a little 'thin'. This Barbera is fuller-bodied than most of its counterparts and displays all the classic traits of an 'old-world' Italian Barbera. The winery claims to use its best fruit for this bottling and we see no reas... Read More
