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 »

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Here we have sweet Italian cherries on the nose with a liberal dose of vanilla, and entry has soft tannin (indicating an optimal shelf-life of maybe another 5 years) but more cherry and, indeed, cranberry fruit; the finish has that trademark pucker of the vine from whence it comes, but is smoother than Barbaresco of the same age; if you have bou...

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is 100% Nebbiolo, 14% ABV and medium bodied. Edging toward garnet in color. Dark cherry with the dried rose petals on the nose that is classic to Nebbiolo. I gives a spash of rasberry on entry with lots of tart acid and finishes with a little drying tannin. Read More

  • Whole ____load of Italian whites tonight. Mostly Sicilian, Calabrian and ... I voted for the Langhe nebbiolo on the red front (the Chianti didn't show as well), though. Just fine with the saltimbocca.  All told some dozen Italians (red and white combined, more whites than reds) in the $20~$50 range retail. I'll probably repeat on three or four ... Read More

  • Al, the Produttori's Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the great value wines of decent quality out in the marketplace. You drank it young, and probably should've decanted/opened the bottle, poured off a glass and waited for several hours. Try their Barbaresco next.Good wine requires acid and some tartness and tannins, though of course balanced with good... Read More
