No one crafts wines that burst with Piemontese flavor and character for under $20 like Marco Tintero. He’s one of those awe-inspiring vignaioli who, if you gave him a few plots of prestigious vines in Monforte or Serralunga d’Alba, would make world-class Barolo. But given that his steep and stunning backyard, twenty minutes east, falls outside of that renowned DOCG, he’s wholeheartedly devoted to making the best weeknight, table wines the region has to offer.
     His Langhe Nebbiolo takes Piemonte’s—and arguably Italy’s—most exalted red grape and delivers an unusually fun and approachable expression that is suited to every table imaginable. Roasting chicken? Simmering a ragù to ladle over tagliatelle or polenta? Grilling a pork chop? Baking a soufflé or roasting squash? With its classic flavors of black cherry, mint, and eucalyptus, and soft tannins, this velvety rosso is a match made in heaven for all of these dishes and more. As with every one of Marco’s wines, it over-delivers and makes a strong case to be that one red you always have on hand.

About The Region

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.
