The Wines of Northern Italy
Attorney Jerry Farrell, Jr. of the Law Office of Jerry Farrell, Jr. traveled to northern Italy recently to assist clients seeking to import their wine to the United States. Of particular importance to American wine drinkers are wines from the Piemonte region of Italy, where Farrell spent two weeks in meetings and visits with winemakers and other important contacts. Wines from Piemonte include Barolo, Barbera, Barbaresco, and Moscato, among many others.
The City of Asti lies at the center of the Piemonte wine trade. Farrell attended several events in Asti, including the Douja d'Or and the Palio of Asti. Farrell also met with the Honorable Maurizio Rasero, the newly-elected Mayor of Asti, on the day of the Palio (picture attached). Rasero is working hard to improve the business climate in Asti and welcomed business ties between Piemonte and Connecticut.
