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 »

  • Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc 1985

    Snoothrank:

    Crayons, charcoal and roasted meat great the nose with this very powerful, dark and earthy bouquet. Theres a lot of dried herb elements deeply embedded here and a pronounced paprika edge, but not much in the way of fruit. Up front this is big and rich with the pepper and paprika character found on the nose but it quickly looses all redeeming fea... 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.
