Piedmont

Piedmont, or Piemonte in local dialect, is the famous wine region in north-western Italy at the foothills of the Alps that is synonymous with wonderful food and wine.  The two most famous wines, Barbaresco and Barolo, are produced from a number of tiny hillside villages whose array of slopes of seemingly every orientation are planted to the kind of grape varieties, Nebbiolo.  Indeed, many consider the wines that come from the myriad of vineyards in these hills to produce the most ethereal, compelling, long-lived and perhaps greatest wine in the world.piedmont.jpg

There are no less than 15 recognised DOCs and DOCGs in Piedmont, and whilst Barbaresco and Barolo are most important, some of the 'lesser' appellations such as Nebbiolo d'Alba (which covers a broader geographic area but also includes the more specific sites of Barolo and Barbaresco) and Langhe Rosso (to the south of the town of Alba, and may be varietal or blends) are also capable of producing stunning Nebbiolos.

Whilst Nebbiolo wears Piedmont's crown, Barbera and even Dolcetto produce some spectacular wines, and Arneis and Moscato d'Asti can be interesting and delicious in their own right.  Gavi is also produced from the white Cortese variety.
