Deluxe Piedmont Wine Hamper
Our Piedmont wine hamper brings you a taste of this north-western corner of Italy. Along with Tuscany, Piedmont is considered to be one of the world’s finest wine regions. It’s the home of more DOCG wines than any other Italian region including incredibly renowned, robust reds such as Barolo and Barbaresco made entirely from the Nebbiolo grape as well as the lighter and more affordable Dolcetto and Barbera, easy to drink and to enjoy daily with meals. Piemontese whites (apart from the sweet 'Asti' and 'Moscato') are very elegant and firm and include Arneis and one of our favourites which we have included 'Gavi'.
Our three wines are carefully packed in a strong hamper box which is tied with a lovely ribbon. A gift message option is available at the checkout for you to send a personalised message to your recipient.

Barolo Luigi Bosca DOCG (750cl): Often described as Italy's greatest wine, Barolo is a red wine produced in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, specifically in the Langhe region, an area of steep and rolling hillside vineyards dotted with small villages. Italy's Barolo wines are powerful and complex tannic, acidic reds. Barolo is classified as a 'Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG)' wine, the highest classification for Italy's wines which are produced under strictly controlled growing and production conditions. Barolo represents the top of Italy's designated wine appellations and one of its smallest.
Luigi Bosca's Barolo is garnet red in colour with orange shades. Scents are winey, oaky and elegant. The taste is full-bodied and with an excellent alcohol content, round, rich in tannins and elegant.
Barbera D'Asti Luigi Bosca DOCG (750cl): This multi- award winning Barbera is ruby red in colour with violet reflections and hints of red fruits. This is a wine with a great richness, alcoholic and notable but also with a balanced softness and a slight tannic presence and a classic acidity of the grapes.
Gavi Le Marne DOCG Organic (750cl): This organic Gavi is cold pressed thereby retaining all the natural freshness of the grapes. An elegant and generous wine, this pairs well with all types of fish and seafood.A pale straw-yellow in colour. On the nose, scents of stone fruits and lemon zest with smoky hints. On the palate, firm and lively with a steely acidity and freshness leading to a lingering finish.
