There aren’t a lot of places left in Italy that can qualify as "under the radar." At the farmhouses in the country’s northwestern corner, you’ll not only find room at the inns, you’ll also get a taste of the old country—the wine, the food, the connection to the land and its past—that’s as authentic as the sauce bubbling away on the stove.
