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 »

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Torre 2010


    A light, ruby-colored nebbiolo. The nose is a pungent earthy/cherry mix that almost approaches cough syrup on the palate with it's intensity. Still quite young/tight with a good bit of astringency. Breathing for a day mellowed it out some.Not bad but not great...at least not yet. Read More

    Wine review by azygos

  • I have been fortunate to play host to Mauro Mascarello during his last several ... the fortune to visit him in Piemonte. As one of the worlds finest producers of Barolo I think I have generally gotten the better of this deal. As a tip of the hat to the Mascarellos I planned something a little special for this visit, an in-depth tasting of Monp... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba 2001


    A light ruby red color with a slightly orange rim. Initially, bright cherry fruit on the nose with rose petal and a woodsy mushroom undertone. Very pure nose that sang Barbaresco and with time allowed the trademark of tar to rise from this wines bouquet. On the palette, medium bodied with raspberry and cranberry fruit and notes of tobacco on the... Read More
