The Monferrato district: fairytale castles and vineyards amid gently rolling hills

Magnificent castles, old churches and evocative medieval villages with tall towers - the rolling Monferrato hills, which occupy the square formed by the towns of Asti, Alessandria, Acqui Terme and Gavi, are rich in history, vineyards and natural beauty. In this area, for centuries strategic for commerce between the Mediterranean and the rest of Europe, numerous varieties of red and white grapes are grown. Barbera d’Asti is the red grape that best reflects the land and its people. But just as typical, albeit in smaller quantities, are wines such as Freisa and the Ruchè of Castagnole Monferrato - a few hectares of vine rows that yield a red with a scent of violets. Moving down seawards, we comes across Gavi, an old, scented, elegant white made with Cortese grapes.
