In northwestern Italy, between Turin and Genoa, the famous Piedmont wine region is located at the foot of the Alps. Piedmont literally means “at the foot of the mountains”. This area, with a continental climate, mainly produces red wines from the Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo grape varieties.
When it comes to the region’s two great wines, alluvial soils translate into elegance and perfume; clay translates into structure and strength, hence Barbaresco’s reputation as the Queen and Barolos as the King – in her you will find the rose petals of the Nebbiolo, in him you will find the powerful tannins.
