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 »

  • Mauro Sebaste Gavi DOCG 2018

    Snoothrank:

    Serious upfront fruit in this one--peach, kiwi, green apple. Also, lots of acid tartness which makes the fruitiness tolerable. Acid also gives a lot of spritziness around the edges of the tongue. An OK wine, Read More

  • Barolo Preda Sarmassa Virna 96js 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Rustic cherry juice in coloration and shows good clarity....perhaps needs decanting as it gets murky after the 2nd pour. Awesome jammy cherry and plum fruits, some modest alcohol, along with nice mocha, cocoa powder and muted vanilla and strawberry sweetness. Flavors follow suit, with mellow cherry, plum, ripe strawberry sweetness, cocoa and/o... Read More
