Today old vine growers of Piedmont still tell the story of the shrewd and tenacious fine-wine trader who operated in the hills around Alba in the 19th and 20th centuries. His name was Riva Leone and he was a pretty extravagant character. It is said that, whenever a wine pleased him during a tasting, he would call out in the way that was typical for that time: Marca Leone! The Piedmont people’s enthusiasm for wine never faded over all these years and today it is still intact. And that is why Riva Leone today boasts a range of fine Piedmont wines. Literally translated, this culture-rich region is called »the foot of the mountain«. It is one of Italy’s biggest wine regions and has Torino as capital. The south-western and eastern slopes of this huge Alpine valley are planted with grapes. Here they take their time to ripen and develop their extraordinary aromas in the cool climate. Apart from Tuscany, most top Italian wines come from Piedmont.
