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 »

  • Mondoro Moscato Moscato d'Asti 2009


    While engaged, me and my fiancé wanted to find a champagne that we would like to drink at our wedding. We didn't like Brut. Extra Dry was only slightly better. We went to a tasting where one of the stewards there recommended we tried an asti. So the most popular was Martini & Rossi Asti Spumanti. It was a step up, but still not very enjoy... Read More

  • Luccio Moscato D Asti 2011


    The wine has a pink tinge to it upon pouring, but the color in the glass is a light golden color. The pink adds some interest to the wine and prepares the consumer for the sweetnss he is about to embark. The natural carbonation "tickles the nose" and intensified the flavor from the bursting bubbles in the mouth. The initial taste is extensive... Read More

  • Casa Sant'Orsola Sant'Orsola Piemonte DOC Barbera Rouge 2007
