Piedmont, Italy, WINE

Buy wines from Italy's Piedmont region for the lowest prices online at Woodland Hills Wine Co.

In the shadow of the Italian Alps, Piedmont rivals Tuscany as Italy's most recognizable and most scenic. Its wine and culinary heritage are inseparable, with both defining themselves on rich, powerful, earthy characteristics. The red Nebbiolo grape is Piedmont's most regal, with the majority of production falling under the Langhe DOC. A fickle grape that is notoriously difficult to farm, it does not travel well, instead reaching its apex in its original soils.

The red wines of Barolo and Barbaresco are some of the finest on earth, the former producing the most masculine red wines in Italy, and perhaps anywhere in the world, and the latter known for its more ethereal, feminine expression of Nebbiolo. Both are highly coveted by collectors for their complex aromatic profiles and incredible longevity in the cellar.

The red Barbera grape plays a distant second fiddle to Nebbiolo, but in the past two decades it has gained a fair amount of traction among the great estates of the region, and the communes of Asti, Alba, and Monferrato all offer their own unique contributions to its expression, as recognized with their own DOC classifications. Dolcetto has long been the little regarded, local workhorse of Piedmont. However, much like Barbera, it has enjoyed a renaissance of its own in the hands of a few impeccable producers, notably in its ancestral home of the Dogliani DOCG.

White grape cultivation, although far from insignificant, still very much trails the red varietals in both importance and volume. The Roero DOCG is the most famous for its fragrant, floral Arneis grape. Moscato d'Asti is the well-known, although oft maligned, semi-sparkling dessert wine of Piedmont, while the small Gavi DOC produces fashionable whites from the Cortese grape. Piedmont's reputation is both well entrenched and well earned, and the region is a highlight in any great wine cellar and on any great wine travel experience.
