W&S: AltoPiemonte

by TomHill » Mon Dec 11, 2017 1:54 pm

Quite an interesting & nicely done article by Stephanie Johnson in the latest W&S magazine on the AltoPiemonte:
W&S:AltoPiemonte ,
describing the recent resurgence of the region.
I've noted a fair number of new producers appearing on the shelves from areas other than Gattinara in the last few yrs. For many yrs, the Quisimodo-shaped btls of Traveligini was about all you'd see, plus a few Antoniolo's. Their use of Vespolina/Croatina to take the fearsome tannic edge off the Nebbiolo is one of the advantages this area has over the B/B paradigm.
Some exciting times up there.

Nice. Opening a 2011 Colombera & Garella Bramaterra this weekend and very curious. Heard so many good things and it seems like it should suit my tastes. But according to the article, I guess that means Colombera was just a teenager when the wine was made!
