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.

The Langa hills are situated in the southern part of the Region of Piedmont, between the Maritime Alps and the Apennines of the Italian Riviera. The name ‘Langa’ seems to be of Celtic origin and signifies ‘tongues of land’, describing the shape of these steep-sided elongated hills which run parallel to one another and are separated by high, narrow valleys.

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.

These native vines with their centuries-long history have formed the hub around which the life of local farming folk and their economy has rotated for many generations. They are considered so precious and unique that today the vineyard-clad hills of the Langa, Roero and Monferrato have been proposed as candidates for Unesco’s World Heritage series.

The main varieties of grapes cultivated in the Langa and Roero are undoubtedly those native to the area. However, during the last few years, some producers have begun to experiment with some of the so-called ‘international’ varieties. The excellent climactic conditions of the region and dedication of the producers themselves have produced some very good results, although it has to be said that traditional varietals remain the undisputed champions.

In the Roero, the most cultivated traditional varietals are Nebbiolo, Barbera and Arneis, followed by Favorita and Brachetto, which does not possess a recognised Denomination and is sold under the collective name of ‘Birbet’. International varieties have not met with much success apart from a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot.

In the Langa the most cultivated traditional varietals are Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato, followed by smaller quantities of Pelaverga, Freisa, Favorita and Nascetta. International varieties are represented by Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, to name the most abundant.
