Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 25 March, 2010

The famous hilly landscape north and south of the town of Alba (province of Cuneo) in the north-west Italian region of Piedmont, which is romantically known as the "Heart of Piedmont". It lies between the upper Po Valley near Turin and the Ligurian Alps and extends over the two provinces of Cuneo and Asti. The area is bordered by the two rivers Tanaro and Bormida. The Langhe is divided into three areas: the Bassa Langa (Lower Langa), with mainly viticulture, the Alta Langa (Upper Langa), with hazelnut cultivation, and the Langa Astigiana area, famous for its truffle cultivation.
