2018 Vino Rosso

Cantine Elvio Tintero

In northwest Italy, Piemonte is renowned for its deeply perfumed reds, capable of both long aging and inspiring strong emotions in devout followers. Marco Tintero, however, has an entirely different approach. His wines are simple, fun, fresh, and extremely affordable, all while retaining a distinct local identity that makes them wonderful everyday piemontese sippers. His Rosso is a blend of mainly Barbera and Dolcetto sourced from various sites around the region, fermented in stainless steel and bottled unfiltered. Finding a wine as tasty and versatile at this price is not an easy task, especially in Piemonte! Its fruit-driven flavors and soft tannins—not to mention the screw cap—make it a handy choice for casual meals and an all-purpose red for unpretentious cuisine. Marco often serves the Rosso with slices of homemade salame, but it also excels alongside dishes like pasta with red sauce, pizza, roast chicken, grilled meats, soft cheeses, and even rich stews. Simply put, don’t hesitate to open this one in any situation!

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.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
