Langhe
Located in the sub region east of the Tanaro river, in the province of Piedmont, Italy, the wine region of Langhe is home to rolling hills, winding roads, and of course, world renowned vineyards. The name ‘Langhe’ translates to long low-lying hills in Italian. Besides wine, this area is also known for white truffles, hazelnuts, chocolate and cheese.

Some of the most prestigious and indeed expensive wines in Italy such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Dogliani and Asti are produced here along with the wines that are made with more relaxed production restriction; the Langhe DOC. The Langhe DOC allows winemakers to experiment with different techniques that would not be licensed under other DOCs. In the words of Angelo Fornara, a sommelier from this area, “Each vineyard cru is like a new human being. It has its own identifiable characteristics that define it just like you and me.”

The development of the skin and aroma of the grapes are aided by the extreme differences in the temperatures during the day and night of this area, and the soils which are mixed with marl or calcium carbonate, which produce a wide variety of wines. Arneis, Nascetta, Favorita, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are some of the white grapes grown in this area, and Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera, Freisa, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are a few of the reds grown here.
