Barbaresco Langa - Neive
Neive (CN)

Barbaresco Langa is the most eastern part of the territory, stretching from Alba toward Asti Moscato hills, through wonderful balconied hills looking at Roero. It is Barbaresco DOCG production area, another great noble local wine, and includes the municipalities of Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso and Alba San Rocco Seno d’Elvio hamlet.
 
Local square-kilometre wide vineyard hills stretch as far as the eye can see. They mix with local Rocche (cliffs) in Treiso and meet Tanaro river, which cuts Roero Langhe in half. Villages perched atop hills are wonderful examples of art and culture which mix with wine scent to let visitors enjoy timeless emotions.

Neive
 
The village is named after gens Naevia, the ancient Roman noble family owner of local lands. The castle went lost but the village historical centre preserves its Medieval plan made of cobbled roads steeping to Torre dell'Orologio (the clock tower), elegant cotto tiled buildings, and red roofed houses leant one against the other.
 
Roads to Neive cross the typical Langhe landscape made of white vine cultivated hills: this area is renowned for its precious wines. Neive is synonym for visits to local wine producers, who often hold special tasting events in noble buildings. Four DOC (controlled designation of origin) and DOCG (controlled and guaranteed designation of origin) wines are produced on Neive hills: Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbaresco and Moscato d’Asti.
