It's hard to imagine, but until the beginning of the 20th century, Piedmontese wines tended to be sweet; this was for commercial reasons, as they were more stable to transport by ship, and for technical reasons, as Nebbiolo is a late-ripening variety and the Pied de Cuve technique ( allows the development of indigenous yeasts for fermentation) was not well known.
This was until the French oenologist Louis Oudart saw in Nebbiolo the stigmata of the champion and decided to give life to Barolo with the help of Count Camillo Benso.
Il Piemonte è conosciuto per i suoi grandi rossi, ma produce anche eccellenti bianchi e bollicine, la cui caratteristica comune risiede nel fatto che sono quasi tutti monovarietali, e cieè prodotti con l’utilizzo di un solo vitigno. Pensate al Barolo, al Barbaresco oppure al Derthona Timorasso.
The vineyards cover around 50,000 hectares with a yield of almost 3 million hectolitres.
The Langhe is located near the city of Alba, on the right bank of the river Tanaro and includes the areas of Barolo and Barbaresco. The most cultivated grapes are Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera.
