AN IMPORTANT HISTORICAL REFERENCE FOR AN IMPORTANT WINE
Bugianen in the local dialect means “Without You”, a popular nickname referring to the Piedmontese and their stubborn temperament, capable of facing harsh difficulties with determination and firmness. The term seems to have originated from the endeavors of the soldiers of the house of Savoy involved in the battle of Assietta, a significant episode in the Austrian War of Succession which occurred July 19, 1747.
