From here you descend down a steep road that turns into a dirt track, until you come to the Talloria stream. You then ascend along a dirt track through the vineyards until you arrive at the hamlet of Collarretto. Continue along the cement road from here, enjoying views of the castle until you reach Serralunga d’Alba, from where you can admire the view over the first hills of the Alta Langa.
