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 »

  • Anna Maria Abbona Dolcetto Dolcetto di Dogliani Sori Dij But 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Far more structured than most Dolcetto, this is a a wine that goes beyond the juicy red fruit of Docetto in a really nice way. The 14.5% alcohol does not really appear and what you get is a full juicy wine with velvety tannins and a extremely long linger. Had it with stewed Rabbit and could consumed another bottle.

  • Clerico Dolcetto Langhe Visadi 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Black color with a garnet hued rim, notes of stonefruit on the nose, a rich body of creamy, dark fruit and leather, notes of chocolate, wonderful cherry and earth finish that builds as your drink. Read More

  • Fontanafredda Langhe Barbera & Nebbiolo Eremo 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Deep garnet colour.Long enough smell of spices and cherries.Long taste with stunning balance. Good acidity with powerful taste. Good compromise of Barbera and Nebbiolo taste. Still nervous with enough fruit to compensate. Very satisfying, without a Piemonte's pricing. Read More

  • Gaja Sperss Langhe DOC 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This barbaresco was young when we drank it but it lived up to the Gaja name as usual. I can see where more aging would greatly enhance this ruby red. It had medium body with berry, licorice and spicy notes. Good tannins and a long finish. http://www.deepredcellar.com Read More

  • Ghisolfi Pinay 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A great value and nice example of newer blends coming out of Piedmonte. Believe its mostly Pinot Noir w/ Barbera. Ghisolfi is a great producer with value offerings in Barolo, Barbera, etc. Not carried in many places in my experience. I know if 1 shop in Manhattan that consistently carries this producer and product: Garnet. Nice red fruit yo... Read More

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Langhe Dolcetto Masante 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple hue in the glass. Blackberries, toast and a bit floral. On the palate blackberries jam with vanilla. Very juicy and with really good acidity. Another good performance and a really good dolcetto but far from worth the $25 that some vendor try to get for this bottle. If it was in the $15 range than I'd probably score it higher. Read More
