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...

TASTING NOTES

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. The 2007 vintage has a lovely bready complexity on the nose and the palate is bursting with delicate white stone fruit characters. Delicious with food but...

TASTING NOTES

Modern but restrained fruit with a tremendous floral scent, dark chocolate and leather. Manages to tame the wild tannins of Nebbiolo, giving a fine abrasion on the palate and bright acidity. Remarkably delicate structure, and very much drinkable now.

TASTING NOTES

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.

Giacosa’s Arneis is a very appealing wine with an attractive bouquet of white stone fruits with a hint of honeysuckle and orange blossom.
