Piedmont Organic Wines Hamper

£99.00

Our new Piedmont organic wines hamper brings you a taste of this north-western corner of Italy. Along with Tuscany, Piedmont is considered to be one of the world’s finest wine regions. It’s the home of more DOCG wines than any other Italian region including incredibly renowned, robust reds such as Barolo and Barbaresco made entirely from the Nebbbiolo grape as well as the lighter and more affordable Dolcetto and Barbera, easy to drink and to enjoy daily with meals. Piemontese whites (apart from the sweet ‘Asti’ and ‘Moscato’) are very elegant and firm and include Arneis and one of our favourites which we have included ‘Gavi’.

Description

What’s inside our Piedmont Organic Wines Hamper:

  • Gavi degli Ulivi DOC Organic (750cl) This biodynamic Gavi is made from grapes grown in south-facing vineyards, on a red clay soil. It is a subtle, fruity wine, easy to drink in its young years and very pleasant especially as an aperitivo or with starters. Should be served cool but not cold. Scored 84/100 in Wine Searcher (Rated ‘Good: a solid, well made wine’) Alcohol: 12%
  • Barbera d’Asti Superiore Trinchero DOCG Organic (750cl) This is a fresh and fruity organic Barbera, sour, savoury and tasty from 20 year old vines with grapes fermented in cement vats and matured in old wooden barrels for another 12 months before bottling. This wine is always complex and well-balanced and offers up immediate accessibility and appeal. It makes a lovely accompaniment to dishes that demand a lighter styled, but complex and tangy red wine. Scored 87/100 in Wine Searcher (Rated ‘Very good: wine with special qualities’)  Alcohol: 14%
  • Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis DOCG Organic (750cl) Barolo is known as the ‘King of Red Wine’, deliciously deep and ruby red and made from 100% Nebbiolo for Barolo grapes. Our Barolo is produced in Piemonte by pioneering Barolo producers Cavalloto and is their flagship wine. Natural and organic, this 2012 Barolo was scored 91/100 by Wine Searcher who collate scores and awards from the world’s top palates. The 100 point scale is the most common way of scoring wine and a score between 90 and 94 signifies an ‘Outstanding wine of superior character and style’. Cavalloto’s Barolo is soft, sensual, intense and inviting, full bodied and warm. It has characteristic aromas of red and black cherries, with summer herbs, anise and penetrating floral notes. This wine pairs well with prosciutto, salami, red meat, grilled fish and also hard or aged cheeses. It is also wonderful with desserts made with dark chocolate and is considered an excellent ‘Vino da meditazione’ or meditation wine – it can be enjoyed all by itself. Alcohol: 13%

Our three wines are carefully packed in a strong hamper box which is tied with a lovely ribbon. A gift message option is available at the checkout for you to send a personalised message to your recipient.  Please note that if we are out of stock of any item we reserve the right to substitute it with the most similar available item.
