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 »

  • Langhe Freisa Burlotto 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, liquory fruit on the nose is full of forest floor and lightly pepper middle eastern spice and sandalwood aromas. On entry this is bright with lovely fruit up front, tightening on the midpalate with some fine grained tannins and scrub brush resiny notes along the long, if slightly chewy finish. This is king of foxy and musky in the mouth w... Read More

  • Langhe G.B. Burlotto 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very herbal on the nose with great fresh tones of fresh strawberry tops and gravelly mineral tones. Astringent and bracing smelling, like an aftershave should. Smooth on entry with absolutely velvety tannins on the palate that gives this medium-bodied wine real mouth presence. This offers up orange rind, rosehip, and dusty cherry fruit on the mi...

  • Burlotto G.B. Comm. Nebbiolo Langhe 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Low aromas of wild cherry liqueur with a nice woodsy edge to the aromas, that are earthy, twiggy, and herbal. Round and fleshy in the mouth with easy fruit, nice framing tannins that a bit tough on the back end though this good length and nice acid it does come off as a bit plodding and missing fruit on the backend. Time might help. 86pts Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Very aromatic with a really compelling nose filled wild berries, balsamic ... ... rose petal top notes. A big Langhe Nebbiolo with alcohol of 14.5% this is powerful and full, though today it does seem just a bit light on the finish. 91p Read More

  • G.d. Vajra Nebbiolo Langhe 2011

    Snoothrank:

    6 months in SS, younger vines from different vineyards in Novello and Barolo, Quite ripe on the nose with small wild cherry and slightly jammy wild raspberry topped by attractive spice notes and nice hints of rose petals.

  • Massolino Nebbiolo Langhe 2011

    Snoothrank:

    12 to 15 days fermentations then 1.5 years in botte. All from vineyards within Barolo, either young vines, or plants that don't deliver the complexity needed for Barolo some of which have 45 years of age. In essence a declassified Barolo. Beautiful on the nose with layers of earth and savory complexity. not fruity in the fruit sense, but deliver... Read More

  • Burlotto G.B. Comm. Nebbiolo Langhe 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Very aromatic with intense aromas of cherries in alcohol, pickled watermelon, mint and fresh rye bread with a gently smoky top note. Light jammy raspberry fruit greets the palate with a bit of a soft, broad feel. This lacks the nervous energy of previous vintages but delivers rich, soft fresh and deep fruit, with nice earthy top notes all suppo... Read More

  • Guido Porro Nebbiolo Langhe 2012

    Snoothrank:

    28 day fermentation, six months in botte Classic aromas greet the nose, prune ... acid, and lots of tannin for Langhe Nebbiolo. A baby Barolo in the making with deep rose petal and cactus pad flavors on the palate, and through the really lovely long, aromatic and powerful finish, where is admittedly does show a hint of heat. 90p Read More

  • Cascina Delle Rose Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A little over-ripeness greets the nose followed by little smoky, stony, mineral nuances. Bright, clean, and mineral in the mouth this is really energetic with lovely fine tannins supporting elegant, raspberry and strawberry fruit topped with little tarry, floral top notes in the mouth and turning orange blossomy on the long and perfumed finish....

  • Luigi Pira Langhe Nebbiolo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The lowest parts of Margheria and Merenga planted specifically for use in Lange Nebbiolo fourteen years ago. These lower vineyards seem to hold more water in the berries so the wines come off as less extracted than higher plts, this vintage the extract is the maximum, same harvest time as barolo Lovely nose filled with pure Nebbiolo fruit, high ...
