The Piedmont area rests in the northwest region of Italy where wine flows like water. With more DOC and DOCG titles than any other wine region in Italy, Piedmont has earned its reputation as the finest wine producer in the country.
Piedmont wine is anything but one note. From fine Italian red wine selections to Moscato wine, Piedmont has consistently turned out a wide variety of wines unmatched by other regions.
Barbera wines are among the newest to reach the DOCG status. This type of Italian red wine comes from the native Barbera grape. Bright red and cherry flavored, Barbera wine is predominate throughout Italy, but the Piedmont region is where it really excels. The wine is produced by the Barbera d’Asti and Barbera d’Alba DOCGs.
Moscato d’Asti Wine
Moscato wine is quite possibly the best known of Piedmont’s white wines. Both Moscato d’Asti wine and Asti Spumante are derived from the Moscato grape. Their richly sweet flavor sets them apart from other wines – they truly are a dessert wine that can be enjoyed all on their own or paired with other rich foods such as chocolate, cream and cheese.
