Piedmont

piedmont.jpgImage by MLCG from Pixabay

Piedmont is the home of great Nebbiolo from Barolo and Barbaresco, but don't overlook the Barbera and Dolcetto, not to mention the Moscato, Arneis and Cortese! Which is to say that these beautiful rolling hills produce a great variety of delicious wines, many of which wine drinkers in Canada might not be familiar with. Marquis is here to help, with a wide selection of wines from Italy's northwest.

Gianluca Grasso tells me he became as strict as an Italian police man, a Carabinieri, when it came to leaf pulling in 2017. Vines needed as much shade as they could get in this scorching hot vintage, so he did not allow for any leaves to be thinned...
