Autumn in colour in the Langhe
The foliage in Langhe, Roero and Monferrato
I’ve always wanted to take a trip to the United States, Maine precisely, during the autumn months. The fantastic photos of the “pine region” with its colors from yellow to dark red fascinate me.
This afternoon I found myself in my car in the middle of the Foliage of my house! The colors of the vineyards with these wonderful days of October gave me a nice treat! Of course, the vines are not as tall as the trees in the woods of Maine, but the view sweeps over a palette of colors, as soon as you climb a little bit on our hills.
And so you find the yellow of the Muscat leaves that make company with the yellow leaves of Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo, which will later become Barolo and Barbaresco, loves to stand out among the others. It still feels noble and different from the others! My favorite, Dolcetto, has bright red leaves. A Dolcetto vineyard stands out for its cheerfulness! The most serious of all is the Barbera vine. It already dresses with autumn colors, and its leaves are purple and almost brown.
If you get to all this beauty with an e-bike ride, a walk or if you want to go further with your car (windows down and slow pace), then you can really say you are part of a beautiful painting!
To conclude and not to miss anything in this magnificent season, we have the Alba Truffle Fair! And then appetizing dishes with the fragrant King. Accompanied by the wines we were talking about before and cheeses that … invite you to meditation!
I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to Maine this year! If you want to come to see, you can tell me if I’m right.
Ah! Little secret. In November, after the Fair, with the first lazy days of fog, the truffle is very good! But don’t tell too much because I still like to keep a few secrets just for us.
A fond regard from the foliage of the Langhe…
