Just 30km apart, Asti and Alba were fierce rivals in medieval times, when they faced off against each other as feisty, independent strongholds ruled over by feuding royal families. These days the two towns maintain a friendly rivalry – stately but workaday Asti sniffs at Alba's burgeoning glamour – but are united by viticulture. Asti produces the sparkling white Asti Spumante wine made from white muscat grapes.
