Elio Altare 'La Villa' Langhe Rosso 2015
91 Points Wine Advocate
The food-friendly and carefree 2015 Langhe La Villa is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera in almost equal parts. The wine moves smoothly over the palate with soft richness and opulent fruit intensity. It opens to a darkly saturated color that is largely driven by the Barbera, with firm structure that comes from the Nebbiolo. Together, these two grapes conspire to create a balanced and fruit-forward expression. Drink this Langhe red within the next 5 years.
