Piedmont is the end-all and be-all of Italian regions. Barolo, and Barbaresco rule the roost, and current vintages and decades-old offerings adorn our shelves. If it’s the bread-and-butter types of wine that sustain your thirst, look for Barbera and Dolcetto, Grignolino, Pelaverga, Ruche, or Freisa. Grignolino is the lightest and most Burgundian in style of these and Freisa is the most robust and tannic. Although red wines dominate the offerings from the region, there’s a plethora of dry white wines to get excited about: Arneis, Gavi, Erbaluce, Timorasso, and more. Arneis is the most delicate in style, with a classic profile of pears and raw almonds. Timorasso, on the other hand, is the most voluptuous of the whites, with a rich texture. And, while it’s reserved for dessert in Italy, Moscato d’Asti, the sparkling, floral sweet white wine is easily enjoyed as a palate-cleanser at any point during a meal. Purists, though, would only enjoy this delicate wine with the requisite Pannetone delicately sweet yellow cake. Piedmont is all about variety, from the whites to reds to off-dry sparklers to the unique, old cellar selections available in our Cool Room. No matter your preference, Piedmont has a wine for you.
