Langhe Lessons

Taste Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and more in our Piedmont wines class on October 8

Vino’s Fall wine classes continue next week with Barolo, Barbaresco and the Wines of the Langhe, a tasting study of some of Italy’s most respected and renowned wines.

The Langhe takes its name from ancient local dialect Mons Langa et Bassa Langa.

The Langhe is a hilly area in the province of Cuneo in south-western Piedmont. This revered wine-making zone spans both Barolo and Barbaresco, two small villages which are now internationally recognized for their world-famous appellations. Between them lies the town of Alba, the commercial center of the Langhe. But the Langhe’s wine production does not stop there. Barbera and Dolcetto make for some world-class reds, and popular but lesser-known varieties such as Arneis, Moscato and Pelaverga further enhance the Langhe’s standing as one of the world’s most important and prolific terroirs.

Join Italian wine expert Robert Scibelli, DWS, for a tantalizing tasting of ten diverse wines made from various varieties found in the Langhe. The class is an ideal introduction to some of northern Italy’s best wines, and an ideal opportunity to delve deeper into the international intrigue and delicate complexities of Langhe wine production.
