Vinum is an event where wine connoisseurs, gourmets and those who wish to get fascinated by the art and culture of lower Piedmont, will meet. They will be cradled by the beauty of vineyards and hills which, in 2014, where awarded by Unesco as World Heritage Site.
It will be possible to experience wine tastings in several locations of the town, with a path throughout the historical centre; the great wines of the territory of Alba, Langhe, Roero and Monferrato will be the main characters.
The Dolcetto is among the most typical autochthonous grape varieties of Piedmont and it is cultivated, to various degrees, almost everywhere in the region.
The name of the grape variety comes from the sweetness of the grape pulp but the wines made from it are completely dry, characterized by a light acidity and a pleasant bitter aftertaste.
The wine tastings will be handled and conducted by the Italian Association of Sommeliers.
