for this region?

 

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 »

  • "what besides cabs and chards have you tried lately"Don't know ... I'm kind of comparing to Langhe and Alba and Valtellina, i.e. non-Barbaresco/Barolo. Those are also interesting and in some cases pretty good.Not to hijack your thread but for me the most unusual is something that has very little acreage in CA.If anyone is interested, here are ...

  • Was reaching for a Dolcetto tonight with Spaghetti, red sauce, olive oil ... ... to be the closest thing, a Langhe Freisa.Turns out my first thought was likely best. The Freisa comes off as grapey, covered in raisins/currant, spice, and a little chocolate/vanilla. Kind of elegant on the palate in its way, but it has a good depth of flavor, of ... Read More
