Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to awaken your taste buds with one of this week’s exceptional stands out! This exclusively imported Nebbiolo from the Langhe DOC appelation made by Francesco Rinaldi & Figli estate.
Langhe is a beautiful hilly region located in the northwest of Italy, known for its long-standing vineyards and winemaking traditions. The region was officially designated as DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) in 1966, which guarantees the quality and authenticity of the wines produced there.
The Langhe DOC appellation produces a wide variety of wines from both red and white grape varieties, including Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Arneis. The most famous and highly-regarded wines from the Langhe DOC are Barolo and Barbaresco, both made entirely from Nebbiolo grapes.
The Langhe region is home to many iconic wineries and vineyards, including Francesco Rinaldi & Figli estate.
Beyond wine, the Langhe region is also celebrated for its delicious cuisine, which includes traditional dishes like tajarin pasta with meat ragù and fonduta, a cheese fondue made with fontina cheese and truffles.
In recognition of its unique cultural landscapes, including vineyards, castles, and historic villages, the Langhe region was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014.
Discover the fascinating tale of this wine from the historic Piedmont estate, which dates back over 150 years to 1870. Today, nonagenarian Luciana Rinaldi leads the estate with the assistance of her nieces Paola and Piera. As traditionalists in the Barolo and Barbaresco style debate, they allow their Nebbiolo grapes to undergo a long maceration before aging in large Slovenian oak botti, a technique that eschews the trendy use of small French oak barriques. The resulting wines are exemplary, exhibiting outstanding fruit purity, complex aromas, firm tannins, and impressive aging potential.
Looking for a wine shop in Dublin to buy Langhe Nebbiolo, which offers a more approachable 'Baby Barolo' style? Our wine shop has got you covered! Our Langhe Nebbiolo is made from younger vines in the prestigious Cannubi cru of the Barolo area, and boasts a fresh palate with a heady mix of roses, plum, and tea-like aromas. This exclusively imported wine is perfect for pairing with grilled meats, lasagne, risotto or sausages, but it's best decanted for an hour or so before consumption to soften its bold character.
