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 »

    Wine review by dedhamfoodie


  • Cantine Castelvecchio Barbera d'Asti 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Finally a young wine that is as dry as I like them! This is my first time to try a Barbera d'Asti, and I am immediately hooked. This wine has a fruity, dark cherry-like bouquet with a hint of oakiness and charcoal. The dryness would have made me think the wine was 5 to 7 years older, so if you like dry red wines, this is a good alternative to... Read More

    Wine review by wkmont


  • Pecchenino Dolcetto Siri D Jer 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A hazy, dark purple hue. On the nose, loads of blackberry jam with toast, chalk dust and vanilla. Followed by blueberries and violet candies on the palate with a medium blackberry fruit finish. A juicy and refreshing Dolcetto that comes across and perfectly balanced and well polished. Read More

    Wine review by Eric Guido


  • Villa Caccione Gavi 2007

    Snoothrank:

    There is a reason Gavi wines are considered the best of Italy, and that is because they go GREAT with Italian pastas. Wow this was the perfect wine for a penne in white sauce. This wine was not particularly dry (of course I am a red wine fanatic who loves a wine as dry as the Mojave desert) but it is a perfect complement to pasta. Rather long ... Read More
