Piedmont, 2006

2006 was a good to excellent Piedmont vintage.

Growers were tested by extremes of intense heat and torrential downpours, with the best (and often most wealthy) producing very good to outstanding wines. But beneath the upper echelons, the quality was more erratic amongst smaller growers who had less to spend in the vineyards and couldn’t afford to cut yields significantly.

Top Barolo and Barbaresco producers made some outstanding wines despite the conditions.
