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

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...

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

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.

TASTING NOTES

Once again the nose is charmed by the elegant, sweet aromas of morello cherries and raspberries. The finesse of Nebbiolo! The palate is a soft dance of red fruits and tannins, reaching towards a long finish. Certainly a wine where age will take it to new heights but equally one to enjoy now.
