Langhe Roero and Monferrato
The "wine landscape of Piedmont", designated by Unesco as a World Heritage Site, includes several areas of the lower Piedmont well known for its wines and landscapes: Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. The Langhe are divided between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti, and are in turn divided into Lower Langa near Alba, Alta Langa on the border with Liguria and Langa Asti, in the south of the province of Asti. In Piedmont with the term Langa we mean the hill, and it is precisely on the extensive hilly territories that for centuries some of the most valuable wines in the world such as Barolo, its close relative Nebbiolo, Barbaresco, Dolcetto and Barbera have been cultivated for centuries. The area of the Monferrato is adjacent to the Langhe proper (although establishing precise boundaries is not simple), and is located between the provinces of Asti and Alexandria. In addition to the wines – Moscato d'Asti, for example – it is known for its villages and cuisine, starting with agnolotti (stuffed pasta). The territory of Roero is located in the northeastern part of the province of Cuneo.
You can't give up tasting the typical products now known all over the world.
To remember just a few: hazelnuts (the Gentile Tonda) in all its variants, honeys, sheep cheeses and goats, baked goods made with ancient varieties of wheat (enkir).
Typical dishes of langarola cuisine are the appetizers of raw meat cut to knife, veal tuna, the first of agnolotti with "plin" and the egg tajarins, the second of chicken veal and rabbit. Like bunet cakes, panna cotta.
You can't fail to mention the beautiful wines of nearby Langa (Barolo, Nebbiolo, Barbera) and the highly sought after Alba truffles
Among these sinuous hills there are places of historical interest : castles of Prunetto, Monesiglio, Saliceto..... the towers of Perletto, Albaretto and Murazzano.........
Don't forget a visit to the "Fenoglian places" in
