2019 Vino Rosso

Cantine Elvio Tintero

The Piemontese are known for being guarded people, and indeed many tastings begin with timid apprehensiveness as your host sizes you up. Not Marco Tintero: he always wears a big grin and exudes boisterous warmth—not so Piemontese, you might think, until entering his home to see the table clad with his lineup of traditional wines and the culinary staples that go with, like grissinitajarin, and even at times the prized tartufo bianco. This red, composed mainly of Barbera, Nebbiolo, and Dolcetto, shares Marco’s easygoing and accessible personality. Pair it with anything from breadsticks to truffles, or just pop, pour, and glug away.

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 twelve 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.
