I thought it might be a nice idea to try and bring together a few notes and experiences on Alto Piemonte wines. I’ve rather enjoyed most of the wines I have had from the region, recent examples being the Antoniotti wines, Fara Ciada 2010 from Vallee Roncanti (the good bottles anyway) and an excellent Mauro Franchino Gattinara 2011 the other week. Jeremy organised a lovely dinner at La Trompette last year and we had a real range of wines including Nervi, Ferando Carema, Le Piane and the delightfully rustic Vallana. As a gross generalisation - I find the wines a bit lighter and more accessible at a younger age (not yet had a “closed” one, but not to say it doesn’t happen) and the lower alcohol is an added bonus. Yesterday I had a mixed case including the below delivered and I aim to taste them and post notes here over the coming months. Hopefully by posting my aim I will keep myself honest in actually getting round to do it.

Please do contribute any notes and experiences you have, including favourite producers.
