The province of Asti with the capital of the same name in the Italian region of Piedmont covers the entire southern Monferrato hill area with 1,500 km². There are many DOC/DOCG areas here. These include Albugnano, Barbera d'Asti, Calosso, Dolcetto d'Asti, Freisa d'Asti, Grignolino d'Asti, Langhe, Loazzolo, Malvasia di Casorzo d'Asti, Monferrato and Terre Alfieri. For the most part, however, simple wines are produced. However, the sparkling wines produced from the Moscato Bianco (Muscat Blanc), also known as Moscato d'Asti or Moscato di Canelli, which was mentioned as early as 1203, are particularly famous. It thrives particularly well in the Langhe mountains around the municipality of Canelli, the centre of the sparkling wine industry. Sparkling wines were already produced here in the Middle Ages.
