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 »

  • Donna Anita Langhe D.O.C. Arneis 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very faint bouquet. Interesting that the wine does seem to fill the palate but does not bring a lot of flavor. It is dry, crisp and refreshing--nothing really negative about it, but nothing that makes you want to come back for more. May have been overwhelmed by the grilled proscuitto-wrapped, basil and mozzarella-stuffed chicken breasts that ... Read More

  • Domenico Clerico Nebbiolo Blend Langhe DOC Arte 1995

    Snoothrank:

    Woody on the nose with jammy fruit underlaid with a rather intense tarry note. With airing this reveals a touch of raw wood, green coffee that gains prominence taking on a chlorine quality. In the mouth this is fairly thick and rich with an extracted feel delivering nice mineral accented fruit on the mid-palate and through the firm, moderately l... Read More

  • Flavio Roddolo Langhe Cabernet Sauvignon Bricco Appiani 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Right now, I've tasted it during my visit at the cellar directly with the owner Mr Roddolo. Even if its youthness, the wine showed me all its power. I think in two or three years it will give us its best result (with a matured cheese plate) Read More

  • Conterno Fantino Nebbiolo Blend Langhe DOC Monprà 1996

    Snoothrank:

    The 1996 Conterno Fantino Barolo Sorì Ginestra, at first, showed very rustic with mushrooms and undergrowth on the nose, but as it spent time in the glass, red fruit emerged with tar, tobacco and a hint of oak. On the palate, I found minerals and earth with tealeaf and dried cherries, which led to a medium long, with light tannin finish. It was ... Read More
