Gianluigi Lano Langhe Rosso Lanot 2018

Unbelievable Piedmont Value: 2018 Gianluigi Lano 'Lanot' Langhe Rosso

Piedmont and Value are rarely encountered in the same sentence, but they are in full force in the 2018 Lanot Langhe Rosso. We've featured this before, and I'm sure we'll feature it again. 

Simply put, this is one of the top Piemonte red wine values I have encountered in my wine career. From a tiny Barbaresco producer, this comes highly recommended from all members of Team Table Wine, especially if you love Northern Italian reds.

Goodness gracious, this wine just keeps getting better! A blend of 70% Barbera and 30% Freisa from vines within the Barbaresco DOCG, this is a stunning red wine for the money.

Freisa is the key to this wine's success. A close relative of Nebbiolo, it balances the richness and fruit-forward character of Barbera with lively acids and spice and floral complexity. Certainly not the heaviest Piemonte red we stock, it is quite generous and giving on the palate.

The Gianluigi Lano story is one worth telling. The family were hard-working, quality-oriented grape growers for many years. Slowly, their work paid off, and they were able to buy their own piece of Heaven in Barbaresco. Their Lanot Langhe Rosso is an ode to the land, the vines, and the culture that the Lano family continue to nurture and embrace.

This wine is approaching its peak form. That means buy now and drink over the next 12 months with lamb chops, grilled mushrooms, risotto, cheese, truffles...I'm getting hungry and need to wrap this up :)
