2014 Barbera del Monferrato “Rosso Pietro”

Cantine Valpane

2014 Barbera del Monferrato “Rosso Pietro” Cantine Valpane - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Italian Values: A strong sense of family, respect for elders, and hospitality to foreigners . . . Oh, wait, not those Italian values. No, more like the “drink it every day and still have enough left to pay your rent” kind of value. So, in the spirit of avoiding forceful eviction, here is Valpane’s 2014 Barbera. Fleshy, juicy, smooth, and extremely pizza-friendly, you won’t find much more bang for your buck than what’s in this bottle. —Anthony Lynch

About 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.
