“Langhe” is a name given to the hills to the north and south of the city of Alba in northern Italy. Blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Barbera from Italy’s Piedmont aren’t typical, but they are delicious. Both Nebbiolo and Barbera are widely planted in sub-Alpine hills of the Langhe on soils consisting mostly of limestone, clay, and sand. Cabernet Sauvignon is new to the region, and despite some controversy, takes advantage of the long ripening season to produce elegantly scented and well-structured wines.
This wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Nebbiolo (25%,) and Barbera (25%). Each variety is fermented separately in a blend of oak, concrete, and stainless steel and then aged for one year in a mix of new and one-year-old French oak barrels before blending and bottling.
