Langhe, which is the plural for the Italian word for “hills” (langa), is a subregion of Piedmont, Italy. Its location near the town of Asti gives it the geographical position to be home to some of the most prestigious of Piedmont’s wines such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Asti and Dogliani. Wines use the Langhe DOC labeling title when wine is produced from grapes of this growing region, but do not meet the labeling requirements for those previously mentioned styles. This labeling designation came about in 1994 as a way of allowing producers to be more experimental with their chosen varietals, possible blends, production styles and aging techniques. 
 
The history of wine-making from this region is extensive, dating back many centuries. And it is rich in its variety of indigenous and international grapes. Some of the whites grown in the region are Arneis, Nascetta, Favorita, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Some have their very own sub-labels according to grapes and vineyard Read more »

  • Braida di Giacomo Bologna Il Fiore Langhe Bianco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Love this white blend of chardonnay (70%) and nascetta (30%), the latter being an indigenous Piedmontese grape. A beautiful combination of delicate and understated complexity. Grassy with citrus and floral notes - super light and refreshing with well balanced acidity. A stunning pairing with a number of cheeses, esp a locally made brie and a Pie... Read More

  • Langhe Freisa Burlotto 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The spicy nose is a sea of tea, tobacco, sweet wood, pink peppercorn, briary sandlewood and dark berry fruit. Dense on the palate with drying tannin and a chewy, woodsy feel. The tannins are really spiky in the mouth and punctuate the clay soil toned mid-palate which is full of spicy, burnt raisin, and slightly cocoa tones. The finish shows some... Read More

  • Langhe Freisa Burlotto 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, liquory fruit on the nose is full of forest floor and lightly pepper middle eastern spice and sandalwood aromas. On entry this is bright with lovely fruit up front, tightening on the midpalate with some fine grained tannins and scrub brush resiny notes along the long, if slightly chewy finish. This is king of foxy and musky in the mouth w... Read More

  • Langhe G.B. Burlotto 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very herbal on the nose with great fresh tones of fresh strawberry tops and gravelly mineral tones. Astringent and bracing smelling, like an aftershave should. Smooth on entry with absolutely velvety tannins on the palate that gives this medium-bodied wine real mouth presence. This offers up orange rind, rosehip, and dusty cherry fruit on the mi...

  • Burlotto G.B. Comm. Nebbiolo Langhe 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Low aromas of wild cherry liqueur with a nice woodsy edge to the aromas, that are earthy, twiggy, and herbal. Round and fleshy in the mouth with easy fruit, nice framing tannins that a bit tough on the back end though this good length and nice acid it does come off as a bit plodding and missing fruit on the backend. Time might help. 86pts Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Very aromatic with a really compelling nose filled wild berries, balsamic ... ... rose petal top notes. A big Langhe Nebbiolo with alcohol of 14.5% this is powerful and full, though today it does seem just a bit light on the finish. 91p Read More
