Piemonte

Piemonte
The Piedmont (or Piemonte) wine region is Italy’s largest – the thick fogs of the region known as nebbia, giving rise to Piedmont’s signature grape variety, Nebbiolo. Found in the famous Barolo and Barbaresco wines, the difficult grape produces some truly spectacular wines when handled correctly. Piedmont is more than a one trick pony though, and other red grapes fare particularly well in the region, notably Barbera and Dolcetto. Cortese is the main white grape of the region and goes into the wonderfully floral and finessed Gavi wines.

  1. Cortese Sacco, Piemonte

    Cortese is best known for producing the popular Gavi wines from Piemonte - a crisp, lime-scented white that has long been considered to be the finest white wines of Italy. It has been grown in Piemonte for hundreds of years and its moderate acidity, fine floral and citrus character lends itself well to the seafood dishes from the nearby coast.

    In the hilly area around Alba, only vineyards in the hills with suitable slopes and orientations are considered adequate for production. The terrains must be primarily clayey-calcareous or sandy-calcareous in character. DOC recognition is excluded for terrains with northern exposures and the bottoms of valleys that are flat or semi-flat. The colour of the wine is intense ruby red when young with a tendency to garnet after ageing.

  7. Piemonte Grande Passolo Chardonnay, Rocca Estate
    Rating:
    100% of 100

    The peculiarity of the terroir of Piedmont hills, together with the climate conditions, the low yield and the attentive and selective manual harvest of the well-matured grapes make it a unique wine.

    The soft pressing of the grapes after harvest and a fermentation in steel tanks at a controlled temperature promote a pleasant mineral and citrussy nose with a well balanced and solid body. Full of tropical fruit pineapple and melon flavours on the palate.  Pairs well with fish, white meats, salads and fresh cheese.

  10. Barolo, Sacco

    Often considered one of Italy's greatest wines, Barolo is definitely one of the most famous and a must try for it's classic tar and roses aromas. This Barolo from the Rocca estate is a classic, dry and austere, autumnal Nebbiolo from this famous Piemonte region. It will delight with its intense bouquet of mature red fruit and tobacco and the ethereal "Tar and Roses" of classic mature Barolo. It is at the lighter end of the Barolo spectrum and fully mature, so expect a more gamey style well suited to roast pheasant, aged beef and other fine meat courses.
