Great tasting of less known wines from Piemonte

Last Monday April 29th I was glad to attend a very interesting wine tasting at the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam.

The tasting was organized by Strada del Barolo e grandi vini di Langa, I Vini del Piemonte – Barolo&Friends and PERSWIJN and professionally lead by Lars Daniëls MV, wine editor at Perswijn.

From links to right: Malvirà Rive Gauche metodo Charmat, Arneis (very interesting, quite fresh sparkling wine); Amalia Cascina in Langa – Monforte d’Alba Rossese Bianco (nice, fresh and interesting); Elvio Cogno Anas-Cëtta (very nice wine, semi aromatic grape, lots of secundaire aromas); Réva Vino & Resort Grey (sauvignon gris & blanc, aromatic but not excessive).

From left to right: Marchesi Alfieri – Cantine e Locanda Barbera d’Asti (very fruity and juicy); Tenuta Barac Barbera d’Alba (clean and crispy) Agriturismo Costa dei Tigli Barbera d’Asti (fruity, juicy, fresh) Colle Manora Vini in Monferrato Albarossa (quite fruity and fresh) Scarpa Wine Rouchet (an excellent ruché) Cascina Castlèt Barbera d’Asti (very powerful, nice sweet touch from the light withering of the grapes) .
