Langhe wines: an extraordinary fertile wine region
Before wine tasting, it is always good to have a basic knowledge of what the wines of Langhe are. Among the varieties, one can find Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera d’Alba, Verduno Pelaverga, Arneis and Moscato. Vines’ cultivation has ancient origins that date back to the Roman age. Such richness is due to the characteristics of the territory of Langhe, which is a sedimentary chalky-clayish marlstones interlaced by layers of sand, limestone and sandstones. The combination of these elements makes Langhe wine production extraordinarily rich.
Monferrato is undoubtedly home to a valuable viticulture besides offering beautiful castles, landscapes and ancient villages full of charm. The most renowned wines of Monferrato are Barbera del Monferrato, Barbera d’Asti, Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese and d’Asti, Freisa, Ruchè, Malvasia di Casorzo and Moscato. Red wines surely prevail, however, whites are not lacking. A peculiarity that makes Monferrato winery visit a unique experience is their architecture; from the underground cathedral of wines (UNESCO World Heritage) to those built with huge blocks of tuff originally used for homes.
Discovering Piedmont wines along the Barolo route
If you have chosen Langhe wine region to visit the places where the best Piedmont wines are produced, you cannot miss out the Barolo route, a true emotional journey that touches several villages including Alba, Roddi, La Morra, Barolo, Dogliani, Monforte d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto, Grinzane Cavour, Diano d’Alba.
