DOC area for red wine in the Italian region of Piedmont. It comprises only five hectares of vineyards and is therefore one of the smallest wine-growing regions in Europe. A wine from this area was already known in ancient times. The zone includes the two municipalities of Briona and Fara Novarese in the province of Novara. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna followed by the name of the vineyard can be indicated on the label. The wine is blended from the varieties Spanna = Nebbiolo (50-70%), Vespolina and/or Bonarda Novarese = Uva Rara (30-50%), and other authorised varieties (max. 10%). There is also a Riserva with a longer ripening period.
