2013 Bramaterra Rosso

Baldin

Nebbiolo is most closely associated with the Langhe, and for good reason. But for lovers of this elusive grape, a side trip into Alto Piemonte is illuminating. This once-thriving wine region was decimated by the one-two punch of phylloxera and economic migration, and by the middle of the twentieth century more than thirty thousand hectares of vineyards had been abandoned. Now, intrepid winemakers have returned to Alto Piemonte and are exploring the potential of Nebbiolo’s other terroir. In the Bramaterra DOC, Matteo Baldin’s traditional rosso blends Nebbiolo with Croatina and Vespolina, which add a bit of fruit and spice to Nebbiolo’s lean frame.

About Piedmont

map of Piedmont

Kermit’s love affair with the great reds of Piemonte dates back to the early days of his career: the very first container he imported from Italy, in fact, featured legendary 1971 and 1974 Barolos from Vietti and Aldo Conterno. Regular visits since then have seen our portfolio grow to now nine Piemontesi estates, with a strong focus on the rolling hills of the Langhe.

Nebbiolo rules these majestic, vine-covered marl slopes, giving Italy’s most mystifyingly complex, nuanced, and age-worthy reds. When crafted via traditional production methods—long macerations and extensive aging in enormous oak botti—the powerful, yet incredibly refined Barolos and Barbarescos provide haunting aromatics of tar, raspberry, incense, tea, roses, and more. At times austere in their youth but well worth the wait, they pair beautifully with the hearty local cuisine starring veal in many forms, braised beef, pastas like tajarin and agnolotti, and of course, Alba’s famous white truffles.

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Piemonte’s climate is continental, with baking hot summers and cold winters. Nebbiolo is only part of the story here: juicy, fruity Barberas and Dolcettos represent the bread and butter throughout the region, and other native grapes like Freisa, Croatina, and the white Arneis are also noteworthy. Value abounds in the Monferrato, while Alto Piemonte also has its share of thrills to provide.

Every corner of Piemonte is rich with tradition, especially when wine is concerned. It’s no wonder we have been singing the region’s praises for over forty years.
