"The Langhe is the name for the hilly region that encompasses Barolo, Barbaresco and communes of Asti. To use the broader “Langhe” designation, a wine simply needs to be produced in any of the region’s 94 villages and use pre-approved grape varieties. Similarly to the Rosa Bella, this versatile red wine sees Nebbiolo in the starring role, supported by the Barbera and Dolcetto grapes. Each grape variety is produced from different parcels of the family’s estate vineyards with the Barbera sourced from younger vines in their Barbera d’Alba. The Nebbiolo is picked from east-facing exposures closer to the family’s Barolo vineyards and the Dolcetto is sourced from higher-altitude plantings just above the Nebbiolo.

To make this wine the harvest takes place during September for each grape variety, although the precise time of month varies depending on ripeness. The grapes are hand picked and hand-sorted, then destemmed and put directly into stainless steel fermentors. The individual wines are then racked to stainless steel vats, where they spend roughly a year before the final blending. After two more months in stainless steel, the finished blend is then filtered and bottled." - JP Donnelly Davis
