Italy’s Piedmont region is home to many great grapes varieties, Arneis and Cortese (the grape used in Gavi di Gavi) for still white wines. Barbera, Dolcetto and Lambrusco for reds. Even grapes for sweet wines, Moscato and Brachetto are grown in this region. But the king of Piedmontese grapes is Nebbiolo. Made into wine in different areas of Piedmont, Nebbiolo is also the grape in the prestigious areas of Barbaresco and Barolo. Barolo has often been called, '"the wine of kings, the king of wines".
Arbeta, Barolo, 2008, is light ruby red. The palate is very floral with notes of rose petals and violets. Red fruits are balanced with leather and earth. The palate is dark red berries with delicious apples, roses and earthiness with smooth tannins and a medium-long finish.
Enjoy the Arbeta, Barolo, 2008 with rich meat dishes with wild mushrooms. Add a drizzle of white truffle olive oil, Piedmont is also the home to these famed fungi.
