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 »

  • Cantina del Pino Freisa Delle Langhe 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nice rusty, slightly astringent red berry fruit greets the nose along with with lovely floral notes. This is fresh and fruity in the mouth, just a touch round texturally but with classic woodsy, rusty slight spicy flavors supported by nice rustic tannins. There's a core of delicious red raspberry fruit here and hints of both spritz and creamine... Read More

  • Marcarini Nebbiolo Langhe Lasarin 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Almost a burnt amber color with some light passing through. Woody, olivy nose. Not terribly full-bodied or, even, full-flavored. Medium bodied, light for a red, but, maybe right where I see a lot of Chiantis. OK, I know this is not Chianti and is not even made from Chianti grapes (Sangiovese). It's a pleasant wine with some cherry/berry fla... Read More

  • Donna Anita Lanche Arneis 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice Italian white - roero arneis. Crisp, not overly fruity or citrusy, but a touch on the lighter side with a dab of white clay on the mid palate and fairly long finish. Great alternative to the chards and sauvignon blancs. Read More

  • Josetta Saffirio Langhe Nebbiolo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    From young vineyards in Novello, with 10% Merlot to add color and softnessSoftly herbal on the nose with an underlying sweetness to the watermelon rind, rose and herb aromas. Open and supple on entry with nice tannins that ping in your mouth like an old school pinball machine. There's some lovely fruit here, gentle woodsy red berries with underb... Read More

  • Alna Rosso Langhe. Josetta Saffirio 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Merlot was commonly planted in the Langhe prior to WWII, so when faced with a plot that wasnt suitable for either Nebbiolo or Barbera the family chose to plant Merlot, they do not grow Dolcetto. This was intended to be their entry level wine, something softer and easy drinking but it has proven to be very challenging to sell and may be discontin... Read More

  • Conterno Fantino Nebbiolo Blend Langhe DOC Monprà 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Perfumed with candied black fruits backed up with plenty of toasty oak. This is simple but assertive with lots of black cherry fruit and lovely herbal accents. Smooth on the palate, and nicely balanced with plenty of tart red berry fruit over well integrated oak spice. The tannins are relatively soft here, allowing this to deliver a nice sweet r...

  • Domenico Clerico Dolcetto Langhe Visadi 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Drink Now- "The 2011 Langhe Dolcetto Visadi is gorgeous in this vintage. Sweet, silky layers of fruit caress the palate in this expressive, nuanced wine. The 2011 is a little laid back but it is very pretty just the same, as the starting point with this fruit is of a very high level. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015." Wine Advocate, 89 Points @th...

    Snoothrank:

    Hold 2015-2020 -Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and rose petalsare some of ... that emerge from the 2010 Langhe Nebbiolo. This racy, perfumed Nebbiolo impresses for its finessed personality and fabulous overall balance. The pedigree and potential of this great Piedmont vintage come through in spades. Sottimano fans know the estates Nebbiolo... Read More
