A vaulted cellar in Piedmont, oak barrels from France, a charismatic winemaker, a marchioness from Monaco and a hotelier from Switzerland with a mission.
A treat with "wow effect" is the "filetto baciato" or "salami-kissed fillet". Tasted the Piedmontese glory once, you'll probably be looking for it back home after the unforgettable taste.
Every year the Piedmont races again: on horseback in Asti and on donkeys in Alba. The history of the two competitions dates back to 1275, when the cities rivaled each other.
