The Pleasures of Piedmont
'The most exciting wine region in the world'
Nebbiolo, king of Italian red grapes, famous for Barolo and Barbaresco, is flourishing with an unprecedented run of great and good vintages. Dynamic growers with a hunger to achieve and improve are more evident than ever before. Their wines show the fascinating diversity of a region with a wonderful variety of soils and situations that add complexity comparable with the fine reds of Burgundy’s Côte d’Or.
There is also strength and depth in Piedmont with barbera, dolcetto, freisa and even the rare pelaverga playing their distinctive part in the region’s breathtaking array of aromas and flavours. A white-wine renaissance is underway too with many treasures to uncover and enjoy.
I warmly invite you to do just that: buy, taste and discover!
