Description to Terre Alfieri DOCG

DOCG area for white and red wines in the Italian region of Piedmont. After the DOC classification in 2009, the high classification was followed in 2020. It was named after the poet and playwright Vittorio Alfieri (1749-1803) from Asti. The zone covers 40 hectares of vineyards in 11 municipalities. These are 7 in the province of Asti (Antignano, Celle Enomondo, Cisterna d'Asti, Revigliasco, San Damiano, San Martino Alfieri and Tigliole) and 4 in the province of Cuneo (Castellinaldo, Govone, Magliano Alfieri and Priocca). If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna can be indicated followed by the name of the vineyard.
