We love Piedmontese wines. Here is a sampling of our current selections.
2017 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 with a lively straw color with slight greenish tint. Its rich pear and peach flavors are complimented by zippy acidity. Well-balanced with weight on the palate and a nutty finish. 12.5% alcohol by volume
2019 Viberti La Gemella Rosata $15
Meaning “twin,” La Gemella was created to honor the winemaker’s mother, Maria, who is a twin herself. Expressive floral tones of wild rose, fresh berries and crushed mineral. The La Gemella is crisp and dry, extremely balanced with notes of sweet berries and zingy grapefruit. 12% alcohol by volume
2016 Corsini Langhe Rosso Matot $13
60% Dolcetto, 30% Barbera, 10% Nebbiolo
The Rosso Matot is Piedmonte in a glass. Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo harmoniously blend together to result in a rustic wine that offers notes of bark, earth, currants and tobacco. Fresh acidity with a component of dill joining on the finish.
2016 Araldica Barbera d’Asti $10
Aromas of dark-skinned berry, forest floor and clove are followed by a straightforward palate that offers plum, licorice and white pepper alongside soft tannins.
2017 Corsini Barbera d’Alba $16
From their estate vineyards Corsini’s Barbera d’Alba is a lively Piedmontese Barbera with fresh cherry fruit and a striking underlying acidity
2018 G. D. Vajra Dolcetto D’Alba $16
Red fruits, sour cherry, violet and hay: an aromatic range that reminds of summer walks in the mountains… and exciting vinosity that reigns in the cellar in September. Soft, open in the mouth and balanced, it has delicate tannins accompanied by fresh acidity.
2016 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.
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.
2014 Pasquale Pelissero, Bricco San Giuliano Barbaresco $27
A family estate, single-vineyard Barbaresco that comes from an 8-hectare parcel at about 400 meters above sea level and is aged mostly in large botte. Plum, cherry, licorice and leather notes on a broad frame. Tight and dense, with a lingering, fresh finish. Decant this one. Was $40 now $27
2013 Terre di Bo. Barolo $35
Extremely full and dry. Notes of red berries, strawberry, cherries, rose, vanilla, tobacco and cinnamon.
2013 Rocca Giovanni Barolo $35
Red berry, violet and baking spice are some of the aromas you’ll find on this elegant, balanced red. Savory and smooth, the silky palate doles out red cherry, strawberry compote, cinnamon and star anise, all framed by polished tannins and bright acidity. Was $50, now $35
