Serenata Wines, this week, bring you Piedmont Wines. In no other region in Italy is there such a strong link between the winemakers and the land they cultivate. There is real pride in the region’s wines and foods (truffles are a favourite here), all grown in the shadow of the Alps in the north-west of the country, close to the border with France. Hearty, generous and individual wines that reflect the character of Piedmontese who make them.
Gavi di Gavi, Produttori del Gavi
100% Cortese from 30 year-old vines within the Gavi production zone; a touch more concentration and class than most you will have tried. Perfect for antipasti and freshwater fish in particular. Hand-harvested then fermented in stainless steel – an excellent Gavi.

Trentasel Brachetto d Acqui, Borgo Isolabella 50cl
It’s not that often that a sweet red renders us speechless, but one sip of this wonderful wine was all it took. Better known in it’s sparkling form, the Brachetto grape has an irresistible combination of fresh violet petal and wild strawberry that works beautifully when turned into a dessert wine.

Roero Audinaggio, Cascina Ca’ Rossa
Angelo`s Barolo lookalike Audinaggio comes from a sandy soiled vineyard and is a rich, concentrated wine of great complexity and purity - drinking in its prime now; tannins and ripe fruit are supple and inviting.

Dolcetto d’Alba ’Ciabot Rus’, Mario Gagliasso
Round, ripe black cherry on the nose; hints of sloe and plum. A fresh, beguiling palate of clean cherry fruit and fresh plum with gentle violet perfume, medium tannins and refreshing acidity on the finish - crisp and tangy.
