A breathtaking scenery is revealed with every bend where, on the one hand, visitors are spellbound by the view over the Alessandria plain and by the pattern of the many pre-Appenine valleys reminiscent of an embroidered lace and, on the other hand, they are mesmerized by the other Langhe hills which lie in front of its gullies and are protected by its towers.
The route goes past the rural village of Sessame and up through fragrant woods and unique viewpoints (above all Roncogennaro) to Cassinasco (it. Langa of Moscato), now on the ridge of the Belbo Valley, and then go down again into the Bormida Valley to Bubbio, a lovely rural village, with its neo-Gothic Castle and beautiful sculptures by Swiss patron Quirin Meyer.
The small capital of the Langa Astigiana, Roccaverano (it. Langa Astigiana in and around Roccaverano), awaits us with its characteristic square overlooked by the Bramantesque Church, the marquis' Palace and the imposing 36-metre cylindrical Tower.
The itinerary continues from here and leads us to the perfect square Tower of Vengore which has been controlling the Spigno Bormida valley for eight centuries and then, instead of going down to Denice, we turn towards the Tatorba valley and return to Monastero Bormida (between Roccaverano and Vengore there are several beautiful paths descending towards Tatorba).
These routes reach some of the best producers of Robiola di Roccaverano and it is worth spending whole afternoons there exploring and tasting, including - as a bonus - the spectacular evening milking of the lively goats.
