Piedmont Within Reach

Piedmont is full of excitement these days, more than I have ever seen in 25 years of visiting the region. The rapid escalation of prices and dwindling availability of the region’s top wines can be discouraging, but it needn’t be, as Piedmont has so much to offer beyond the most highly coveted Barolos and Barbarescos. This report covers a wide range of wines that deliver plenty of Piedmont soul at prices that are accessible.

Guido da Costigliole, Cuneo, Italy

Readers visiting Piedmont should carve out the time to go to Guido at the Relais San Maurizio. The hotel is wonderful too, should you not want to leave. Andrea Alciati, Monica Magnani and the team at Guido are at the top of their game.

Vinous Favorites

2021 G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo

2021 G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo, 90 points

The 2021 Langhe Nebbiolo is a terrific entry-level wine. Delicate and gracious in the glass, it captures the essence of the house style. Bright, red-toned fruit, orange peel, mint, crushed rocks and white pepper lend brightness to this elegant, wonderfully translucent Langhe Nebbiolo. (AG)
