REGION

Piedmont, Italy

The Italian word "Piedmont" means at the foot of the mountains, and indeed the whole region is dominated by the Alps to the north and the west. Piedmont is home to the largest area of vines which produce DOC and DOCG wines, and the region boasts over 40 denominations. The most well known wines from Piedmont include Barolo and Barbaresco, made from the Nebbiolo grape, and Asti Spumante, made from the Moscato grape. Nebbiolo is the undisputed king of the grape varieties in Piedmont but you should not ignore the lovely reds from the indigenous Dolcetto or Barbera, nor indeed the best examples of international varieties and of course the wonderful local whites, most particular the resurgent Arneis. We are honoured to represent two maestros of Piedmont - Angelo Gaja and Bruno Giacosa.

TASTING NOTES

Tasted in October 2014. The 904 Gran Reserva 1998 brings out the best of the vintage; one of Rioja Alta’s finest in the 90s, as displayed by the quality of the 890 release from the same year.
