Few people know that Upper Piemonte in the early ‘900 had a vineyard area no less extensive and important than the Langhe. Here, too, Nebbiolo and Gattinara were cultivated, considered the wine of kings. The diseases of the vine before and the industrialization afterwards, however, depopulated the countryside, causing the production to fall, both quantitatively and qualitatively. For some years now a small group of growers has ensured that these great wines have returned to express their full potential and therefore leading them to compete with the most titled nebbioli of the lower Piedmont.
THE VINEYARDS OF UPPER PIEDMONT ENJOY A PRIVILEGED CLIMATE. PROTECTED BY ICE IN WINTER AND REFRESHED BY MOUNTAIN WINDS IN SUMMER, ENCOURAGING THE DEVELOPMENT OF AROMATIC PROFILES OF WINES.
In Upper Piedmont there are three main areas, the Ossola Valleys, the Novara Hills and the Coast of Sesia, where each of the three represents a DOCG.
Nebbiolo is undoubtedly the native grape variety par excellence of Alto Piemonte. Some almost unknown varieties such as Vespolina, Erbaluce and Uva Rara or Bonarda Novarese complete the picture of the autochthonous. All vines that can be vinified alone or concur with different blends.
In fact, together with the Croatina, Vespolina and Rara grape varieties, Nebbiolo reigns in the 10 denominations that characterize Alto Piemonte. Le Docg Gattinara and Ghemme and Doc Boca, Bramaterra, Novara Hills, Coast of Sesia, Fara, Lessona, Sizzano and Ossola Valleys
In addition to these great DOC wines, are also produced drier wines that go under the name of DOC-umbrella. These are unaltered Nebbioli, vespoline and autochthonous Croatine that are produced from grapes similar to those used to produce the now famous Erbaluce di Caluso.Look at the other wineries in Piedmont and Italy
