But in addition, that many wine regions are so tiny in the north that hardly manage their products already lack of assets across borders. But it is worthwhile to look for these wines out. Who far looking for authentic, characterful wines outside the mainstream, must feel like in paradise in the northern Piedmont. Mostly, the wines of the north fall in comparison with the more famous neighbor a little easier, but without the sacrificing complexity and depth. The qualities are often excellent, sometimes great - and usually at reasonable prices.

Uva Rara, Vespolina or Croatina are frequent blending partner, though usually in only small amounts.
