The Langhe or Le Langhe in Italian is a hilly area in the Piemonte (Piedmont) region of northern Italy. The Langhe lies south and east of the river Tanaro in between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti, bordering on the Astesana, Monferrato and Roero. They consist of an extensive hilly system, defined by the course of the rivers Tànaro, Belbo, Bòrmida di Millesimo and Bòrmida di Spigno.
Terroir: The Langhe’s vineyards (and white truffles) are found at altitudes below 600 m. Land at higher altitudes (up to 900 metres) is given to forests and hazelnuts orchards. The Langhe Astigiane area in the south of the province of Asti peaks in the municipality of Seròle (851 metres).
