Wine connoisseurs consider Piedmont (Piemonte), along with Tuscany, to be the best wine region in Italy. The guiding principle here is the number of DOC (G) ‘s. DOCG is the highest rating for wine in Italy and DOC the second highest. No fewer than 16 DOCG and 42 DOC wines come from Piedmont.
The most famous wines from the Piedmont are Barolo and Barbaresco, which are made from the Nebbiolo grape.
