The magnificent, 360-degree view from the top of the hill embraces the Piemontese, Aosta and Lombard Alps in the distance as well as, in the foreground, the Moscato and Barbaresco hills to the east, and the amphitheatre of the Barolo hills, the town of Alba and the whole stretch of the Tanaro valley to the west.

The area's soil and climate conditions are ideal for quality wines. An impressive range of precious grapes all grown within the boundaries of the commune are turned into famous 'Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita' (controlled and guaranteed designation of origin) wines such as Barolo and Diano d'Alba or into 'Denominazione di Origine Controllata' (controlled designation of origin) wines such as Nebbiolo d'Alba and Barbera d'Alba.

The Dolcetto grapes that are grown in this soil and benefit from this special climate can be turned into firmly structured, intensely fruity, softly mellow and remarkably long-lasting wines which are called Diano d'Alba precisely in order to distinguish them from other Dolcetto wines.

Moreover, all the vineyards of the comune of Diano d'Alba that are ideal for growing quality wines are catalogued as 'Söri', a Piemontese word meaning 'sun-facing'.
