Piemonte wine region

Sandwiched between the Alps in the north and the Apennine Mountains in the south, Piedmont (or Piemonte in Italian) is the home of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Arneis grapes, among many others. The vineyard areas of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato are some of the few wine-growing regions to make it onto the UNESCO World Heritage list, alongside St Emilion in Bordeaux and Tokaj in Hungary.

Remarkable red wines: Barolo and Barbaresco are known as the King and Queen of Italian wine. Barolo is austere, with plenty of muscle to flex, while Barbaresco is more mellow.  Barbera is Italy's third most popular grape. It's high in acid and low on tannin, so has a light and refreshing flavour. Despite its dark colour it tastes like wild red fruits – such as strawberry and cherry – with a hint of spice.

Remarkable white wines: Arneis is deliciously sharp and refreshing, it has delicate aromas of fresh pear, apricots and blossom. The best examples of this aromatic white grape come from Roero – just on the other side of the Tanaro River from Barolo and Barbaresco.

Remarkable sparkling wines: Muscat, or Moscato d'Asti, is low in alcohol and enlivened with subtle sparkle. It's a gorgeous wine for a summer afternoon. It was originally made by winemakers so that they could drink at lunchtime without becoming tipsy. It is made from Moscato Bianco grapes – one of the oldest varieties grown in Piedmont.
