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. Piemonte Grande Passolo Chardonnay, Rocca Estate, 2018
    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.
