DOCG area for dry red wine in the Italian region of Piedmont, named after the municipality of the same name 15 kilometres south of Alba. It was classified as DOC in 1966 and DOCG in 1980. The area comprises around 1,300 hectares of vineyards with countless parcels in the Langhe mountains with the districts (or only parts of them) of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, Cherasco, Grinziano, La Morra (by far the largest area with a third of the surface area), Monforte d'Alba, Novello Rossi, Serralunga d'Alba and Verduno. These are predominantly south-facing vineyards on steep slopes. The historic core areas of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, La Morra, Monforte and Serralunga account for more than 80 per cent of production.
