Winemaker Notes

Pale garnet in color, this wine offers delicately layered aromas of dried red cherries, plums, cola and sweet spice. On the palate, the wine is perfectly structured with integrated, fine-grained tannins and lively acidity, which along with its rich flavors, evolve into a sumptuously long finish.

Ideal with robustly flavored cheese or braised beef dishes.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Enticing cherry and plum flavors are shaded by eucalyptus, earth and tobacco accents in this sinewy red. Racy and energetic, with a long, vibrant aftertaste. Could use short-term aging to polish the tannins. Best from 2020 through 2025.
JS 90
James Suckling
Quite reductive at first, but it opens up to show raspberries, cedar and cloves. Medium body, fresh acidity and a zesty finish.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a smooth and silky wine that is immediately attractive and highly versatile, especially with pasta or easy meat dishes. This is a clean, ruby colored expression with a fragrant bouquet that shows a very evident floral signature with rose hip and dried lavender. This finish here is zesty, bright and teeming with energy. Some 10,000 bottles were made.

Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
