PIEDMONT

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...

Dark, straw-yellow colour. Intense, fine and elegantly fruity bouquet reminiscent of peach, apricot, citrus, fruit and acacia flowers. Fresh, impeccably balanced and very drinkable, with a long, delicate aftertaste.Armit Wines

2017 Roero Arneis, Bruno Giacosa

Bottle 75cl £25.50

TASTING NOTES

Immediately enjoyable, with a wonderful bouquet of red fruit, floral notes and just a hint of meaty savouriness. The palate is lively and fresh, with silky tannins and just enough acidity to give it a nice little kick at the end. This is the perfect introduction to the house style – elegant, understated and yet full of character. Armit Wines

Beautifully deep ruby colour, with a bouquet of plum, cherry and spice. Fruity, fresh and balanced, with a fair amount of grip on the backend, this is a delightful Dolcetto that more than holds its own. A charming and approachable introduction to the Giacosa line-up.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Morello cherry, bruised red plum and rose petal, spill from the glass.  Bright fruit intensity is backed up by ripe, silky tannins and wonderful freshness.  Drinking beautifully now it can age well for another five years.  Truly a baby Barolo from the Maestro’s cellar.Armit Wines

The light hay colouring is loaded with greenish reflections. The fragrance is soft and complex, especially inviting with aromas hinting broom, camomile and fresh fruit. The flavour is pleasantly tangy, full and very persistent.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

A deep ruby red, yet with a bright and lively aspect. The scent is complex and rich with fruit, floral scents, spices, underbrush and plums. It has an intense flavour with sweet tannins and a long aftertaste. The Barolo Villero expresses itself with its characteristic stimulating scent, accompanied by a dry but warm and elegant flavour, which it retains for...

Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.Armit Wines

Bottle 75cl £18.00

TASTING NOTES

This fantastic Dolcetto is surely one of the best values in the entire Langhe.  Perfectly pitched and beautifully infused with youthful ripe cherry and plum.  Plump, bold and impressive, there is a sublime freshness here, lifted gracefully by a delicious vein of mineral acidity.  It is ideal for drinking over the next two to three years.

Giacosa’s Spumante is produced using the champagne method using Pinot Noir grapes. Matured on the lees for three years and riddled by hand, this is a softly textured wine with a very elegant mousse.

As always, this Barbera impresses for its sheer depth and charm.  It comes from vines close to the Gavarini vineyard.  Gianluca employs a very gentle use of barriques to help soften the sharp natural acidity of the Barbera.  The result is pure joy.  Its mouth-watering, juicy bramble fruits combine on the palate with sleek and softly spiced essence.  This is...
