Piedmont

Piedmont

Piedmont translates as ‘foot of the mountains’ and the most important region in Piedmont for quality is around the 45th parallel, the same as Bordeaux. Famous for Barolo and Barbaresco, made from the grape Nebbiolo, Piedmont has a continental climate, with hot summers and very cold winters. The best soils have a high percentage of calcareous matter.
