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 »

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • Maybe.The reason is that there's a heirarchy in Italy. Langhe is a DOC, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata. That means the grape varieties and winemaking are controlled.But Barolo and Barbaresco are DOCG, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, which is the highest classification in Italy. It means that not only are things cont... Read More

  • Braida di Giacomo Bologna Il Fiore Langhe Bianco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Love this white blend of chardonnay (70%) and nascetta (30%), the latter being an indigenous Piedmontese grape. A beautiful combination of delicate and understated complexity. Grassy with citrus and floral notes - super light and refreshing with well balanced acidity. A stunning pairing with a number of cheeses, esp a locally made brie and a Pie... 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

  • 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...

  • Are we talking about the Languedoc region of France or the Langhe district (DOC) of Piedmont? They are a long way from each other!
