Piemonte

Piemonte

our Piemontese selection by Winemaker / Estate...

For connoisseurs, collectors and drinkers alike, Piemonte is a happy hunting ground. Its unique climate, geography and history has conspired to create a vinous and gastronomic Valhalla. 
The majority of Piemonte wines concentrate on single varieties, which makes things a little easier to understand, then again there were 16 DOCGs and 42 DOCs last time I looked (probably more now) and some are ‘Village Wines’ and some ‘Varietal’. 
The most famous village wines are Barolo, Barbaresco and Gavi, waiting in the wings are the Alto-Piemonte village wines, which I am convinced will be the greats of the future. 
For now though, the rule of thumb is that Nebbiolo is fantastic and the best wines are from the villages of Barolo and Barbaresco.
Barbera is wonderful and is best from Nizza or when planted in prime Barolo sites;  Dolcetto can be rather lovely so long as it is not over-extracted. 
Gavi is making a real resurgence in qualitative terms though it is Arneis and Erbaluce, which will be responsible for the great wines of the future. 
Finally, Moscato is being taken seriously and there are some superb wines to try, there are also a good many to avoid.

  3. Brovia. Barolo 'Villero' 2004

    A classic powerful and full-bodied wine from a historical vineyard of Castiglione Falletto. The colour is intense ruby red with a light presence of orange reflections. The smell is elegant, intense, pleasant , balanced and with a hint of withered roses, plums, minerals, tobacco, liquorice, smoke and leather. The taste is full bodied, balanced and velvety, with a huge structure and a very long finish

  6. Brovia. Barolo 'Rocche' 2005

    eRobert Parker (Galloni) 92 points
    Is all class and elegance. Sweet, open aromatics meld into an expressive core of small red fruits. As is often the case, the Rocche present a very fine, chiseled expression of fruit framed by relatively soft, silky tannins. In 2005, the Rocche is remarkably accessible, although it will likely firm up a bit in the bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.

  8. Ascheri. Montalupa Syrah 2007

    Generous fruit, big, open and soft and were it not for a vein of Piemontese restraint this could be mistaken for a top new world syrah (and I mean that as a compliment)

  9. Primovolo 2007

    Every constituent wine enjoyed an excellent vintage, Giordano’s Merlot is deep and velvety, Sergio’s Sangiovese is masculine and full and Andrea’s Barbera is generous in energetic bramble-charged fruit.

  10. Ferdinando Principiano. Barolo Serralunga 2009

    Damson, blueberry and violet, cinnamon and mint aromas, fine blackberry and blueberry fruit, loose, bright and floral with elements of minerality and cigar box.  A spectacular, easy drinking wine.
