A journey to discover the flavours of the Langhe and its three magnificent wines: Barolo, Barbera and Barbaresco. Beautiful landscapes, strong flavours and appetising dishes, towns of Roman origin and relaxing walks through hills and vineyards.
Wine should be eaten, it is too good to be merely drunk.
Here we are ready for the start of our Langhe experience. A little more than 70 kilometres south of Turin, this incredible hilly area that yields prized truffles, excellent wines and superior quality hazelnuts awaits us to fill our eyes with splendid landscapes, beautiful walks through hills and vineyards, and mouth-watering dishes accompanied by the stars of the tour: Barolo, Barbera and Barbaresco
One of Piedmont’s noblest red wines and an ambassador of Italian oenology in the world, is garnet red in colour with orange highlights, and has a complex, persistent and intense nose. Fruity and floral notes are combined with more spicy aromas. In the mouth it is powerful, balanced and elegant: a wine with great personality!!!
Inhabited since the Palaeolithic period, but it was only in Roman times that it developed and traces of its past are still visible and well preserved, such as the aqueduct. It grew further in the Middle Ages with the construction of the Castello dei Paleologi, which today houses the archaeological museum. The main feature is the Bollente, an octagonal marble aedicula surrounding a thermal spring from which boiling, healing water gushes out at 74.5° and 560 litres per minute.
The White Truffle of Alba
This is a variety of white truffle, typical of Piedmont, which is harvested in the autumn in the woods of the Langhe. The best period for its ripening is October, but it can be harvested up to December. Its special flavour and aroma have led it to be the true diamond of the kitchen and to be appreciated by chefs all over the world. It is strictly consumed raw
