Ah, Piedmont, one of the biggest and still less known areas of Italy. A place with many dxcwell-kept secrets: abbeys, medieval town, crystal blue lakes, and wines. Not just any wine, but alas some of the best of the entire Country. Maybe it’s for the air, or for the rich soil, or again for the abundance or rivers; whatever is the reason, Piedmont is a treasure to be discovered. Starting from the hilly countryside of Langhe and Roero, listed among the Unesco heritage sites for the stunning beauty of the landscape: there, between Alba and Asti, are born and are still produced today two of the most known red wines of Italy: Barolo and Barbaresco.
The importance of the territory is highlighted straight by the very name of the wines, which are called not by the grapes used in their production, but by the area where they are made. Such as the medieval village of Barolo, in the province of Cuneo, one of the 11 municipalities where the wine was born and where it is produced since today.
