A 3 bottle Snapshot Case featuring 3 different red wines each made from one of the 3 main great Piedmontese red varieties.
The Italian region of Piedmont in North-West Italy is quite rightly regarded as one of the worlds great wine producing regions, and has been for centuries. From the renowned wines of Barolo and Barbaresco to popular everyday reds like Barbers d'Asti Piedmont has something for everyone. Nebbiolo is regarded as a King of Grapes and produces some of the worlds most expensive wines. It is a tricky and sensitive grape to grow that likes a few hills in Piedmont and pretty much nowhere else! Our Langhe Nebbiolo is an approachable, affordable entry into this variety with its enticing aromatics and smooth medium body.
Our second wine is made from Barbera, the region's most widely planted variety. While much production is devoted to light and fruity table wines our Barbera d'Asti 'Le Orme' by Michele Chiarlo is a bit more of a serious example with a touch of oak used to add that structure and body. Dolcetto provides the juice for our third wine. Traditionally a bit more rustic than the others winemakers and wine-drinkers alike are falling back in love with this variety. Our example is made by top Barolo producer Francesco Rinaldi and this wine is actually from a single vineyard within the Barolo area itself and is light, fresh, fruity and altogether rather classy.
So enjoy and discover the 3 principle reds of Piedmont with our Snapshot Case.
