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 »

  • 2013 Andrea Oberto Langhe Nebbiolo. Infanticide that left me with guilt, regret and a dry tannic pucker laying like a cement slab over the herbed and mineral cherry fruit. My first time with this label. He's supposed to be a modernist, but maybe not so much so.After about six hours opened enough to make me think it does show true promise, and I'... Read More

  • There are a couple Langhe Nebbiolos like Vietti's Perbacco and one or two others, and a few Gattinaras and the like that go for a song that I actually do drink like dailies, or elevated dailies.  As long as the food is right, and they are pretty flexible, even good with roast chicken, there's nothing stopping me.

  • Only can find them in fits and spurts in Tokyo. Even the Langhe Nebbiolo, and whenever I see it I grab a case or two. Ditto for the plain vanilla Barbaresco, which is a real step up--from an entry-level wine that is my idea of the ideal daily quaffer that can also even work on special occasions. So I, too, am a big fan.Posted back on Dec. 6 in O... Read More
