PIEDMONT DOC

When we talk about Piemonte DOC we do not mean a wine, as one might mistakenly think, but a quality denomination of wines created towards the end of 1994, thanks to which Piedmontese producers have had the opportunity to give life to new products of high quality, guaranteed and protected by this denomination. Obviously, the Piemonte DOC denomination was not exempt from modifications and adjustments. Just think of the decree issued in 2007 and served to introduce the definition of “sparkling” wines as well as create the definitions of the packaging of quite different bottles. Subsequently, this quality denomination has done nothing but evolve further and in 2010 the system relating to the denomination was also modified, so much so that new types of vines were established (red, white or pink berried) and other vines were classified in relation to the name, as Dolcetto and Freisa, among the most important in Piedmont. The quality denomination also includes vines such as Albarossa which, thanks to its quality and the attention paid to the production of the wines, is considered one of the highest quality vines in the region, so much so as to offer very intense and excellent fruity wines. harmony between taste and aroma. Again thanks to the Piemonte DOC denomination, it was also possible to produce wines with particular names, such as Sauvignon blanc or Cabernet sauvignon, as well as Pinot noir or Merlot. All wines that are now part of the Piedmontese tradition and participate in real competitions representing the region with all its particularities. Another novelty that was introduced over time concerned the famous mountain vineyards, to define the vines located in the mountain areas: this denomination was used to label various white, red or rosé wines with the Piedmont DOC denomination, thus helping numerous viticultures located in a certain altitude. Nowadays the wines marked with the denomination in question can all be considered of excellent quality and are all 100% autochthonous wines. These wines can be differentiated into sparkling, still, sparkling or parasitic ones and best represent the production area (which can be extremely vast). Thanks to the Piemonte DOC denomination it is therefore possible to classify Piedmontese wines more correctly and not create confusion about the various production areas. This denomination also specifies that the wine produced is the result of an ancient Piedmontese viticultural tradition combined with modern trends in the production of wines. A tradition that is constantly updated and continuously evolving, which is why its quality is recognized all over the world.
