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...

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

On the nose, the sweet, lifted fragrance of roses slowly unfurls. Behind come the red fruits- pomegranate, red cherry and red currant. There is a crunchiness to the fruit on the attack but then the wine begins to flow smoothly across the palate, showing ripe and finely grained tannins without any austerity. The grip and bite of a classic Nebbiolo...

Gaja’s Sorì San Lorenzo is made from old vines on steep, south facing slopes with poor soils composed of clayey-calcerous marls. It is the most powerful of the single vineyard Barbarescos with the capacity to age for 40 years or more.
