By car in northern Italy

A good friend of mine is travelling through northern Italy in a few weeks and he asked about beer places to visit. Since I’ve never been there I figured I could try the RB forums. They will be going by car and will mostly stay outside of the major cities. The travel plan is: Venice - Tuscany (staying at a place south of Pisa) - Piedmont (staying at a place south of Alba). Anybody got any tips?

Thanks in advance!
