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 »

  • Langhe Nebbiolo. Fontanafredda 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The wine has a bright ruby color in the glass with great clarity. The nose is remarkable in its young complexity with aromas of tar, licorice, dried flowers and an almost cotton candy note. The taste is quite nice, with notes of berries and plum that transition to some earthy notes of peat midpalate. The finish is quite pleasant as the young,... Read More

    Wine review by sarahbeader


  • Sorry, I was counting producers, 6 of whom were Cali.  I counted Lanessan ... right.  (Piedmont or Piemonte, but "Piedmonte?"  C'mon.)  And the selection, for claiming some expertise, is horrid.  I'm thinking this is what working for Wynn does to you--you know what rich know-nothings buy (Gaja, Sandrone, Voerzio, Aldo Conterno) but carry nothi...

  • Travaglini Gattinara Trevigne 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Un vino di 13 anni che conserva ancora il profumo di viola selvatica. Un vino dai tannini raffinati, di media persistenza dal colore aranciato diffuso. Sentori di mora e frutti a bacca rossa. Read More
