Ripe cherry, spice, and lifted minerality in the nose. Rich and mouthfilling. Loads of soft tannin. Way richer than most Langhes I’ve had. Like a very good quality Barbaresco.

Nice ruby light plum color. Nice nose of tar, cherries, spice, dead leaves, moss, wet earth after a rain, very earthy, very wet earthy. Still a nice core of cherry on top of all that earth. Opulent and rich on the palate with telltale Nebbiolo tannins, but tamed and ripe with impressive flavor hierarchy. Nice freshness and great acids. Rustic but that is the charm. This would kill with beef. Drinking great now, but probably needs an hour to flesh out.

21.99 from esquin. Earthy. Colin’s does not taste zing. Enough bright. Will buy again

Very nice for the price. Good acidity with nice tannin structure. More spice and complexity than other Langes.

Needs at least 3-4hrs but then it opens up real nice.

Packat med maraschinokörsbär, rosblad, lite nypon och tighta tanniner. Inget alkoholkladd eller torkad frukt, väldigt snyggt.

Just a beautiful faintness of earthy fruit which fills your mouth as you let flow, feel the the silky essence of oak and a soft dry finish, cleansed for the next anticipated taste!
