Piedmont: Top Values and Everyday Gems

Drinking top-notch, artisan Piedmont wines doesn’t have to cost a fortune. While prices for Barolos and Barbarescos continue to escalate, the best Dolcettos, Barberas and Langhe Nebbiolos deliver tons of Piedmont character and pedigree at far more accessible prices. That is especially true of entry-level wines at the region’s best addresses.

2014 A. A. Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs ($17.00) 90

2014 A. A. Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs, 90 points

This Rhône blend based on Shiraz and Cinsault from South Africa, makes a perfect low-cost introduction to the wines of Swartland. Aromas of raspberry, licorice, spices, black pepper and earth lead to a savory, creamy palate with terrific intensity and lift. Balanced to enjoy now or to hold. (ST)

2006 Colgin Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill

Colgin’s 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill is simply extraordinary. The aromatics alone are dazzling. Sweet tobacco, graphite, mocha, black cherry and spice give the 2006 its exotic, alluring personality.
