Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont Wine Region

Piedmont is one of the best expressions of northeast Italy one can find. A prestigeous wine region next to Tuscany & Veneto, it has a whole new set of regional grapes & varietals to get to know, and the famous Barolo & Barbaresco only account for 3% of the total production in the Piedmont region!

Regional History & Terroir: Piedmont has a rich winemaking history dating back centuries. The region is nestled between the Alps and the Apennine Mountains, creating a diverse terroir with a mix of rolling hills, valleys, and slopes. The unique combination of soils, including limestone, clay, and sand, along with the region's temperate climate, contribute to the distinct character and quality of Piedmont wines.

Typical Grape Varietals: Piedmont is known for its indigenous grape varietals, most notably Nebbiolo, which is the star of the region. Nebbiolo produces two of Italy's most iconic wines, Barolo and Barbaresco, known for their power, complexity, and ability to age. Other red grape varietals cultivated in Piedmont include Barbera and Dolcetto. For white wines, the region produces notable varietals such as Moscato d'Asti, Arneis, and Cortese (used in Gavi wines).

Regional Wine Styles: The crown jewels of Piedmont are the Barolo and Barbaresco wines, which are made exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes. Barolo is known for its bold structure, high tannins, and flavors of dark cherries, truffles, and tar. Barbaresco, while similar to Barolo, tends to be slightly lighter and more approachable in its youth. Piedmont also produces excellent Barbera wines, known for their vibrant acidity and flavors of red fruits, as well as Dolcetto wines, which are lighter and fruit-driven.

Piedmont's winemakers are known for their dedication to quality and tradition, combining modern winemaking techniques with respect for the land and the grape varietals. The region's wineries offer breathtaking landscapes, including vineyards nestled among picturesque hills and medieval villages, providing a charming setting for wine tourism. Piedmont wines are highly sought after by wine enthusiasts and collectors worldwide, making it a must-visit destination for those seeking exceptional red and white wines in Italy.
