The Langhe is a historic region of Piedmont located between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti, consisting of an extensive hilly system defined by the course of the Tanaro, Belbo, Bormida di Millesimo and Bormida di Spigno rivers. The hilly area of the Langhe has always been dedicated to viticulture, thanks to the particular constitution of the marly calcareous soil and the fortunate climatic exposure. Soil and climate are the two fundamental elements that have generated optimal hydrogeological conditions for the culture of the great Piedmontese vineyards such as Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Moscato, which outline the slopes and plains of the area.
