Alta Langa DOCG

The Alta Langa zone includes 149 municipalities and stretches from the province of Cuneo to the provinces of Asti and Alessandria. The Belbo river cuts through the area, which in the north is called the Bassa Langa (home Langa), and in the south is called Alta Langa or “The deserted Langa”.

Alta Langa is known for its breathtaking view of meadows and ancient forests, and the landscape is dotted with “ciabots”, traditional stone buildings used by local farmers to store various farm produce.

The Alta Langa zone received its DOC in 2002 and in 2011 it was elevated to DOCG. The zone produces only sparkling Spumante types, covering white and rosé.

The grapes are Pinot Nero and/or Chardonnay, as well as local non-aromatic white grapes. The wines are produced through the “Metodo Classico”, meaning the natural fermentation in the bottle.
