The pride of Piedmont, Nebbiolo is the backbone of the best Barolo and Barbaresco wines. The berries are black, medium-sized, round-elliptic, thin but with a tough, dark purple skin and a waxy appearance. Nebbiolo wines are often distinctively perfumed with an aroma described as "tar and roses", along with a moderate body, strong, tannic backbone and high, fresh acidity.
Best-known for its starring role in Piedmont's Barbera d'Alba and Barbera d'Asti wines, Barbera is a northern Italian grape producing fresh, light-bodied red wines with low tannins. When young, most Barbera wines have a bright-red cherry character, distinguished from Nebbiolo by softer tannins and a certain roundness. When matured in barrel and allowed to age in bottle for a few years, this turns to a denser, sour-cherry note.
Langhe is the hilly subregion east from Tanaro River and south of Alba, in the Province of Cuneo, Piedmont. The name "Langhe" is the plural form “langa”, a local word describing a a long downhill. A Langhe DOC wine can be red, white or rose, from the mixture or individual tipe of grapes. It can be quiet, frizzante, novello (a youthful style) or passito (made from dried grapes).
