Nebbiolo d’Alba or Langhe Nebbiolo?

Although this difference is often not grasped, for us it is crucial. The area where we are allowed to produce Nebbiolo d’Alba is small, with a kind of soil suitable for this appellation. On the other hand, the Langhe Nebbiolo area is large, with heterogeneous soils. Finally, Nebbiolo d’Alba is made using 100% Nebbiolo grapes while Langhe Nebbiolo allows an 85% minimum Nebbiolo content.
