G. D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo 2014

Holy Nebbiolo, Batman! This bottling from Vajra is the real deal. Galloni nails it with this gushing writeup...

90 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(2/2017) "The 2014 Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the hidden gems in this lineup. Frankly, it is better than many Barolos or Barbarescos. Sweet floral aromatics, bright red cherry fruit, mint, licorice and tobacco are some of the signatures, but it is the wine's overall balance that is most remarkable. Simply put, this is an outrageously beautiful wine for the money. In most vintages, the Langhe Nebbiolo is a combination of fruit from Vajra's estate in Sinio (more on that in a bit) plus declassified lots of the Barolos. In 2014, most of the fruit is from the Sinio property. If you ask old-timers (you have to go back 1-2 generations), grapes from Sinio were often used for the production of Barolo. The fruit sees a short fermentation in steel meant to emphasize freshness, but I have no doubt that if the Vajras wanted to, they could make a Barolo-level wine from this fruit. Instead, the Langhe Nebbiolo is a mini-Barolo that punches well above its weight."

Deltetto Langhe Pinot Nero 2013

90+ Our Score
(6/2017) This beautiful Pinot Noir comes from the same single vineyard as Deltetto's Arneis, in the Roero region of Piedmont. Since Pinot Nero is not a recognized grape of Roero, it must be labeled as Langhe. This is a newer wine for the Deltetto family. The vines are only ten years of age and the family is really starting to hone in on making a high quality Pinot. Backing up this commitment to quality is the fact they only make this wine in the best vintages (the grapes will go into their sparkling wine production otherwise). The wine is very old-world in style, comparing to a good village level Burgundy. Fermentation takes place in concrete followed by oak aging in 50% barrique and 50% large cask. The oak hardly comes through, as this wine is all about the gorgeous dried red fruit, earth and subtle spice. For $20, this is very much worth checking out!

Aldo Conterno Langhe Rosso 2011

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $23.99!
91 Our Score
(4/2015) Aldo Conterno is one of the most celebrated growers in all of Piedmont. Known for his stylish, high end Barolo, Conterno also produces this delicious Langhe Rosso. The wine is made primarily from the obscure Fresia grape with smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot added in for good measure. After fermentation in tank, the blended wine is moved to small oak barrels, both new and used, where it spends up to twelve months. The result is this delicious red that tastes like a Barbera-meets-a-Barolo with a slight suggestion of Bordeaux! Look for flavors of dried raspberry and strawberry, red flowers, dried red earth and smoked green herbs. Try it with grilled sausages!
