The Langa and Roero regions are among the world’s most generous for the quantity and quality of wines produced. The origins of their fortune can be found in a micro-climate peculiar to the area, their geographical position and the richness of soil types to be found there. All these are factors that contribute to the region’s biodiversity – also illustrated, for example by the richness of other plant species, such as the 39 species of wild orchid native to these hills.
South Piedmont’s great classics - Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Moscato – have been an essential part of local agricultural economy for many years. They are all cultivated throughout the area of land divided by the river Tanaro. If planted elsewhere, cultivation is possible but results will not be so satisfactory: the soil ‘recipe’ found here in the hills of the Langa and Roero – marl, clay, chalk and sand – together with cool temperatures, the proximity of the Alps, abundant water and south-facing hillsides allow these varietals to express themselves to the full.
