Here’s a list of our current “everyday” Piedmont wines. Barbaresco and Barolo will have to wait until Saturday.
2018 Corsini Langhe Bianco $16
Arneis, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
This unique white blend from the Langhe immediately impresses with an engaging array of apple, pear and gooseberry aromas and a bright palate of layered fruit and crisp acidity. Over delivers.
2017 La Battistina Gavi $15
100% Estate Grown Cortese
Lively straw color with slight greenish tint. Rich pear and peach flavors complimented by zippy acidity. Well-balanced with weight on the palate and a nutty finish.
2018 C’ Gialla Roero Arneis $15
More floral than most of the Arneis that you’ll find out there, with that nice hint of almond that we look for in a good Arneis. Hints of white and citrus fruits, notes of savory and freshness. Farmed naturally without the use of herbicides or pesticides.
2019 Malvira Roero Arneis $15
Lifted and fresh on the nose with notes of white blossoms and snappy fruits. On the palate, the wine gives way to stone fruits and hints of melon before finishing with a zip of refreshing acidity. The finish is clean but long and showcases this classic vintage perfectly. Was $25, now $15
2017 Corsini Barbera d’Alba $16
From their estate vineyards Corsini’s Barbera d’Alba is a typical Piedmontese Barbera with fresh cherry fruit and a striking underlying acidity
2019 Viberti Barbera d’ Alba La Gemella $15
La Gemella was created to honor the winemaker’s mother. This Barbera has expressive floral tones of wild rose, fresh berries and crushed mineral. Full-bodied layers of blueberry, licorice, and earth are perfectly balanced with a vibrancy of acid, silky tannins.
2017 Boschis Francesco Dolcetto Dogliani $17
A dry and intense Dolcetto delivering wonderfully earthy flavors in addition to the classic red fruit. Dark red berries, iron, smoke and leather all inform the superb finish.
2019 Ca’ del Baio Langhe Nebbiolo $15
A vibrant, medium-bodied red from Piedmont with no oak contact. This wine features bright cherry along with the earth and tobacco finish of good Nebbiolo. Zingy acidity and granular tannins make this versatile pairing.
2018 Corsini Langhe Nebbiolo $19
From two different vineyard sites—one is within the Barolo appellation and the other is just outside the appellation limits. This wine has red fruits, pretty florals and spicy aromatics dominate the nose while the palate is well-structured with a nice fruitiness through the middle. The palate has a light hit of blood orange in addition to minerals and a forest floor note.
2016 Pelissero Langhe Nebbiolo $25
A very serious wine at this level, as it has considerable tannic clout underpinning the fruit. Lifted aromatics, finely sculpted red fruits and firm tannins are front and center it packs a good bit of energy and intensity into its mid-weight frame. The Langhe Nebbiolo is a tank of Vie Erte Barbaresco juice given a shorter aging time of five months in tank and five months in cask.
