Piemonte



Perched on the rolling foothills before stunning snow capped alps, Piedmont in Italy’s northwest is not just a serious wine capital.  From white truffles to hazelnuts, it’s got food cred as the birthplace of the Slow Food movement and is a UNESCO World heritage area for its culture of food and drink.

Red or white?
Whilst there’s some white here, the red grapes rule the roost.  Chief among them the trio of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. The thread uniting this gang are persistent tannins, savoury red fruit and their elegant perfume.

Grapes
White: Moscato, Cortese
Red: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto

Style
Nebbiolo with its floral nose, layers of complex flavour, and fierce tannin and acid, is capable of ageing and evolving over decades. Whether from single vineyards or blends, it’s at its finest in both Barolo and Barbaresco. 

For both price and performance Dolcetto is the everyday star, whilst Barbera’s acid and dusty red fruit will appeal to Pinot drinkers.

And you might know Moscato? The village of Asti, its home base, gifted this joyful, floral fizz to the world.  Known as frizzante for its slightly sweet, slightly sparkling style.

    Turin Vermouth Drapo Vermouth Dry 18% alc
    A dry vermouth of exceptional quality and refined organoleptic characteristics achieved through the harmonization of a selection of fine wines, fortified with alcohol, sweetened with sugar and reinvigorated with a select blend of herbs and spices. An intense, lingering taste with fresh, fruity characteristics. This dry vermouth is extremely complex yet pleasing and elegant with notes of Iris Florentina and bitter orange. An excellent base for creative cocktails. DRAPO

  2. Erba Volant Vermouth di Torino 750ml
    Erba Volant Vermouth di Torino 750ml
    Very much made in the pale, bitter and dry spectrum, this vermouth is a decent step up from the more traditional and commercial 'blending' vermouths. This is made from a base white wine of Cortese and Trebbiano with alcohol, sugar, water, an alcoholic infusion of herbs and roots, cardo gobbo di Nizza Monferrato and wormwood - the plant that defines Vermouth di Torino.

    Wonderfully golden yellow in colour with amber reflections, the aromas and palate are expressive and elegant, with marked herbaceous notes of absinthe, cardo gobbo, velvety vanilla and a touch of chamomile. We think it's best served chilled on ice. 16% alc.
