Piedmont has made progress like almost no other wine region over the past 30 years. While radically different approaches to winemaking have accentuated the stylistic differences possible from the noble Nebbiolo grape, there are now many outstanding varied examples. High quality is also achieved across a wide range of styles made from the classic Barbera and Dolcetto grapes while superb, exuberant Moscato and enticing dry whites remain under-appreciated. There also a host of lesser known varieties which with improved winemaking now provide more than a passing interest. But what’s really special about Piedmont is man’s connection with the land and the importance of the link between fine wine, the physical environment and the human endeavour therein. It is illustrated as well here as in any wine region in the world.
