Alto Piemonte is in the top North West corner of Italy, 100km north of Barolo, heading towards the border with Switzerland. This region, often viewed as Barolo’s poorer neighbour, is a lesser known haven for Italy’s classic Nebbiolo grape, locally known as Spanna. The region suffered badly economically during the two world wars, gradually losing some of its traditional industries and originally had a much larger area under vine, now considerably diminished, spread over lots of tiny parcels, with some sites having disappeared altogether beneath woodland.
The region’s wines have seen a renaissance in recent years with more investment in re-establishing and consolidating vineyards, as land can still be purchased relatively much less expensively than in Barolo or Barbaresco. The wines remain at more approachable prices, extremely good value, particularly with their noted longevity in bottle.
The name itself Antonio Vallana e Figlio evokes the family’s long and honourable history, based in the heart of the region, in Maggiora and their website proudly proclaims 5 generations in wine.
