My First Encounter with One of Italy's Greatest Grapes

Published Apr 27 2021 at 9:06 AM GMT
  • At the end of the week in Milan, the four of us piled into the car to make our way to nearby Piedmont (Piemonte), one of Italy"s most revered wine regions, with property price tags to prove it.
  • As the car hummed along, I looked out the window and melted into the comfort of watching the rolling green hills pass, bathed in warm autumn light.
  • As we approached the heart of the area, we saw there were vineyards in every direction; grapes appeared to be the only crop growing for miles.
  • Nicola called wineries to determine where we could go for a tasting and a tour.
  • His voice rode the roller coaster of the Italian language'a cascade of rolling Rs and vowels.
