Piedmont, ITALY

Piedmont, ITALY

 

Piemonte wine is the range of Italian wines made in the province of Piedmont in the northwestern corner of Italy surrounded on three sides by the Alps and bordering  with France, Switzerland and the Italian regions of Lombardy, Liguria, Aosta Valley. 
 
The best-known wines from the region include Barolo and Barbaresco. They are made from the Nebbiolo grape. These wines are ideal for storage and a well-aged Barolo for instance may leave a feeling of drinking velvet because the tannins are polished and integrated more and more into the wine. As the wine matures the colour becomes more brownish and rust-red.
 
Other popular grapes used for red wine production are Barbera and Dolcetto. Wine made on the Barbera grape is often fruity and delicate with less tannin than wine made from the Nebbiolo grape. Dolcetto on the other side, is not as
the name indicates sweet (dolce is Italian for sweet). The grape gives fresh
and dry red wines with some tannin.
