In the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo wine is used to make an after-dinner digestif known as Chinato. The bark from the South American cinchona tree is steeped in Nebbiolo and then flavored with a variety of ingredients, depending on the producer's unique recipe. Some common ingredients of  Chinato include cinnamon, coriander, iris flowers, mint and vanilla. The resulting beverage is very aromatic and smooth.
