The region of Piedmont (ital. Piemonte) with the capital Turin is located in the extreme northwest of Italy. With a land area of over 25,000 km², it is the second largest after Sicily. The beginnings of viticulture go back to the Celtic people of the Taurines (who gave the capital its name) and to the Ligurians. The Romans already knew Piedmontese wines (from Gattinara, among others), but the universal scholar and wine author Pliny the Elder (23-79) does not mention a single one in his list of the best wines of antiquity. It was not until the Middle Ages that the wines produced primarily by monasteries became known from...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, the beginnings go back at least to before 1,000 BC.

This makes them ideal for sweet wines in the style of a passito made from dried grapes. That the variety originates from Greece is an unproven hypothesis. It was first mentioned under the name Elbalus in 1606, and its exact origin is probably the current Canavese DOC area in the...
