It's not going too far out on a limb to say that Piedmont is the most exciting wine region in northern Italy. This is certainly also due to the great wines from Barolo, but by no stretch of the imagination is it just that. It is precisely because of the rediscovery of the viticultural periphery that Piedmont has not only gained in diversity in recent years, but also in quality - this is particularly evident in regions such as Bramaterra, Ovada, Monferrato and the Colli Tortonesi, where the white grape variety Timorasso is celebrating its well-deserved renaissance and offers a fantastic alternative to the great red wines of the region.

Dolcetto plays the main role and no other variety talks to them.
