History and Tradition of Piedmontese wines
Piedmont, located in the north-west of Italy, is one of the most renowned regions in the country for the production of wine. With its rich winemaking tradition, breathtaking hilly landscapes and a wide range of native vines, Piedmont is a true paradise for wine-lovers and beyond.
Tradition Piedmont's winemaking dates back to ancient times: since Roman times these hills have been home to vineyards which, over the centuries, have become a constant, leading in some cases to mono-culture. the region developed a reputation for excellence in the production of quality wines, which it has maintained to the present day. The winemaking techniques handed down from generation to generation and the attention to detail in the production are an integral part of the Piedmontese wine culture. Piedmont has always been a stronghold for the production and consumption of bulk wine, once marketed in demijohn, to then be bottled directly at home and today in the more practical format of the bag in box. Without a doubt, the wine that is most closely linked to this tradition is Barbera, an everyday red par excellence that has always accompanied the home-made meals of the Piedmontese. We wanted to pay tribute to this authentic and peasant story by offering our customers a vast choice of Barbera in bag in box.
Piedmont it boasts numerous denominations of origin, DOC and DOCG which guarantee the authenticity and quality of the wines produced, but it does not even have an IGT. Each denomination has strict rules that must be respected to maintain the high quality standard. In the production regulations of these denominations very often the bag in box format is not contemplated, so it is not possible to market a Barolo or a Barbaresco DOCG in this format, but only the Piemonte DOC with the grape variety indicated on the label.
The native grapes of Piedmont
Piedmont is famous for its typical varieties, which give the wines a unique and distinctive character. Among the best known red berried varieties there are certainly Nebbiolo, used to produce wines such as the famous Barolo and Barbaresco, and Barbera, which gives life to lively and fruity red wines. As for the white varieties, Chardonnay and Arneis are among the best known, but there is also room for Favorita, once used in blending to give intense aromas to blends, producing fresh and aromatic wines. As selectors, we have always liked to go in search of the minor native vines of this region, some examples? The Baratuciat, for the whites, a grape that risked extinction in the nineties due to the abandonment of the countryside and which today is experiencing a beautiful revival also linked to the resistance that this vine shows in the face of the consequences of climate change. The Freisa, for the reds, a variety for a long time associated with ready-to-drink and low quality sparkling reds and the Grignolino which attracts more and more aficionados given the current interest in thinner, more agile and drinkable wines. On Sfusobuono you can find a wide selection of Piedmontese wines in bag in box, all handcrafted with spontaneous fermentations and with a moderate use of added sulphites.
Which dishes to pair with Piedmontese bulk?
Piedmont wines offer a wide range of aromatic and gustatory nuances and are particularly versatile combined with traditional regional cuisine and beyond. The Piedmontese whites are an excellent choice for a light and summer aperitif based on snacks and pretzels, chips and olives , but also a perfect ally for fish-based appetizers, such as amberjack tartare, carpione or sandwiches. A light and drinkable red like the 'Vino da Sete' by Tenuta Il Nespolo based on Barbera, Freisa and Sangiovese grapes, it is also excellent to drink after a slight passage in the refrigerator during the summer as an accompaniment to one of the great Piedmontese antipasto musts: vitello tonnato. Thin slices of meat cooked at low temperature to maintain that classic pink colour, covered with a generous layer of tuna, egg and caper sauce. The Barbera from the Grapes Line or that of the Carussin winery, thanks to their balanced acidity and their soft and fruity structure, are ideal reds to drink with main courses typical of the region such as agnolotti del plin with roast sauce, tagliolini with sausage ragout and pasta mixed with beans. A Piedmontese gem, to be enjoyed mainly in the Spring-Summer season, is rosé wine, such as Rosathos by Cascina Isabella based on Barbera and Brachetto grapes and the Rosato delle Valli united with a lesser known variety such as Malvasia di Casorzo. Perfect wines to pair with lighter first courses such as risotto creamed with butter and pasta with white meat sauce, but also with simple dishes such as quiches, hard-boiled eggs and fine pickles such as pickled vegetables, baby artichokes, stuffed peppers and trumpet courgettes. The wines of Piedmont represent an enological heritage of inestimable value. The region offers a unique wine experience, thanks to its thousand-year history, native grape varieties and beautiful hills that frame the vineyards.
