With a great wine tradition, Piedmont seduces with its hills clinging to the vineyards and the diversity of wines that can be found there, with a quantity of quality “vignaioli” that perpetuate a peasant life attentive to a craftsmanship perfected over generations.

The noble heart of Piedmont lies in the southernmost area, in the Langhe, around the town of Alba, capital of the white truffle, between the two prestigious wine areas of Barolo and Barbaresco. But Piedmont is not limited to its noble flags. The ancient vineyards of Monferrato, the Astigiana area around Canelli, the Tortonese area, Alto Piemonte with the Ghemme, Gattinara and Boca appellations of origin, but also the moscato of Asti, the whites of Roero show the diversity of production that has existed historically. The Piedmontese vineyard is fragmented, the vineyard has always been part of a system of polyculture, where the farmer rented the land from the nobles to produce, often without being able to make a sufficient profit. Barolo will be the exception, since the fame achieved by Piedmontese wines has encouraged and economically sustained the small farms of today. Although Nebbiolo is the most famous grape variety in northern Italy, wines made from this variety account for only 3% of red wine production, which is essential and exclusive to the Barolo and Barbaresco appellations, wines for celebrations and not for every meal, where a gluttonous Dolcetto or a refreshing Barbera is favoured. Historically, Nebbiolo was aged in old, large-volume wood, but barrels have only recently arrived in the region and their use is considered a sin by traditionalists. Classic producers age Nebbiolo in barrels of 20 to 40 hl, where it can be aged for one and a half years for Langhe Nebbiolo, three and a half years for Barolo and seven years for Barolo Riserva.
