(10/2013) "Vajra's 2012 Langhe Riesling is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Lime, tropical fruits, white flowers and spices all jump from the glass. This is one of the more immediate, open, young Vajra Rieslings I can remember tasting, which means the 2012 will drink well beautifully right out of the gate. Floral notes add lift on a finish of exceptional beauty."

Aldo Conterno Langhe Rosso 2011

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!

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!

G. D. Vajra Langhe Rosso 2013

90+ Our Score
(5/2016) A classic Piedmont field blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto with small amounts of Albarossa and Pinot Noir, this fruit-driven red is vinified in tank without oak. The result is a fresh, friendly and playful red wine bursting with bright red cherries and strawberries, and clean, refreshing acidity that makes it oh-so-fun to drink. Serve it slightly chilled and enjoy it all season long with your favorite pizza and pasta dishes, grilled seafood, sausages and just about any other light summer fare.
