This is a bit of a mish-mash, disjointed fruit and flavors fighting against each other instead of working together. Not Recommended.
Coming soon to a local wine shop: Dry sparkling Moscato from Piedmont.
Surprisingly classic for a new style of wine.
A luxurious silky palate of dark fruits, blueberry and black cherry, with a touch of real black licorice. Highly Recommended - 93 points.
Ask most winos what place is synonymous with nebbiolo and without hesitation they’ll say Barolo. In their second breath they’ll utter Barbaresco, the next region over in the same Langhe hills. Only the most knowledgeable will tell you, in their third breath, of the exceptional nebbiolo that exists in Northern Piedmont, aka Alto Piemonte.
In this, the second part of the series, we dive into the dizzying world of Monferrato. Moscato and barbera may reign, but it’s these multitudes of obscure and fascinating grape varieties that really keep wine geeks coming back for more.
