Le Piane

Although a relatively unheralded region, Alto Piemonte is undergoing something of a renaissance, and Tom Hyland discovers that Le Piane is at its vanguard.
Alto Piemonte, a renowned wine region in northern Piedmont, has gained prominence for its Nebbiolo-based wines like Gattinara, Ghemme, and Lessona. While some exceptional examples stand out, inconsistent releases persist due to youthful plantings and limited winemaking experience. To elevate Alto Piemonte's reputation, a visionary with both outstanding wines and a compelling personality is needed. Christoph Künzli emerges as a potential savior for this dynamic region.
