'Little sweet one', so named because it is naturally low in acidity. After Barbera, it is the most common red grape of Piemonte and, in youth, can be mouth-fillingly delicious in the short term. It is particularly useful to growers because it ripens much more easily than Nebbiolo or even Barbera, so tends to be planted on north-facing slopes. A little is grown in both North and South America.
