Discovering Piedmontese labels

Piedmont is rich in evocative landscapes and important oenological excellence; the region is one of the greatest producers of wine in Italy. Demonstrating the important place of wine in the local community, eighty percent of Piedmont vines are recognized as DOP, specifically DOCG and DOC.

The fame of Piedmontese wines is mainly linked to the area's  excellent red wines,  including Barbera, Barolo and Dolcetto. However, together with rosé wines, these represent just over half the region's production. Indeed, Piedmont vines also produce white and sparkling wines, including Gavi and Moscato, two prestigious examples in the region.

Want to know more? We have selected  three of our best Piedmontese wines  to show you the fruits of the ancient wine tradition of this region.

PIEMONTE BARBERA DOC 2018

When you feel the need to let yourself be carried away by the simple flavours of our cuisine, you can rely on  Piedmont Barbera DOC 2018  to be a faithful companion at the table. This  structured dry wine  brings together the distinct flavour of Barbera grapes in a refined and elegant way. The wine  goes perfectly with hearty soups, red meats,  strong  cheeses and appetizers.   It is the ideal wine for those who love to be persuaded by strong flavours and who note the colours and aromas of blackberries and cherries in the glass.

BARBARESCO DOCG 2015

Awarded the gold medal at the Berliner Wein Trophy in 2018 and winning   silver at the International Wine Challenge UK,  this red wine is vinified with full respect for Piedmontese tradition. It is ideal for accompanying dishes featuring  truffles, game or aged cheeses.   Spicy and sweet at the same time, this wine owes its seductive balance to a  slow maceration of Nebbiolo skins and to  three years of refinement in oak. Its flavour is clear and authentic and leaves no room for second thoughts. Try it to believe it!

MOSCATO PIEMONTE DOC 2018

Highly drinkable and very fresh to the palate,  Moscato Piemonte DOC 2018  demonstrates that Piedmont has all the skill and experience needed to offer wine lovers an excellent alternative to reds.  Perfect with cold and traditional desserts,  the wine is characterized by its straw yellow colour and full-bodied bouquet. Pour it for a light, pleasant and fragrant toast.
