Do you struggle with making decisions when purchasing wine? Would you like an idea for something special to bring back from your trip to Piemonte? This region of Italy has wine to suit anyone and every occasion, and Wine Pass is here to help with some recommendations.


Wines for special occasions  

If you are prepared to spend a little extra, these are five very classic wines in a slightly higher price range.

Giacomo Conterno Cascina Francia Barolo
Made from the grapes of Conterno's special 14-hectare cru Monfortino, this wine has exquisite balance, excellent structure, and a complex play of aromas and flavors that make it an epitome of Barolo

Mascarello Barolo Monprivato
Mascarello is a cult Barolo winemaker, well-known for towering wines made with a blend of grapes from multiple vineyards; this Monprivato breaks the great family tradition with a rich, compelling Barolo made from the Nebbiolo grapes of one single cru.

Cappellano Barolo Chinato
This ancient family recipe for Barolo Chinato, a fortified and spiced wine, is one of the most admired and respected in the region

Gaja Sori Tildin Barbaresco
A landmark wine among Barbarescos, this single vineyard wine reflects the character of Nebbiolo in a special way, with great depth and length on the palate and powerful strawberry notes

Gorette Barolo
This limited-edition Riserva comes only in a 1.5 liter format and is sold exclusively at the Cordero di Montezemolo estate in Monfalleto

Barolo Gorette 


Wines to impress the wine-o’s 

These unique Piemontese grape varieties are grounded in their trusted terroirs, and offer something new and interesting for wine lovers.

Pelaverga
Fragrant, spicy, and versatile in food pairing, goes well with both rich and delicate pasta dishes, fish and roasted fowl, to name a few excellent ideas

Nascetta
A white wine with lively acidity and a mineral finish

Moscato Passito
A sweet, velvety dessert wine with hints of honey and citrus

Sparkling Nebbiolo
A refreshing take on the classic grape, this version is light-bodied and fairly acidic with intense bubbles

Ruché
Mineral and aggressive, this wine is meant to be drunk young and pairs best with rich foods
