Notes of candied strawberries are nicely intermingled with hints of ripe stems and citrus. Medium to full body, fine but structured tannins and a rather long finish. The fruit is very well integrated and there’s a whole load of richness to it, too.
The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe’s finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region’s range and meet international demand.
