Langhe Nebbiolo changes name and dress. With the 2021 vintage, now in its 15th year, and so for the vintages to follow, our Langhe Nebbiolo will be called Rangone and will bear a special artwork on the label signed by Gianni Gallo. The name Rangone has ancient roots and comes from the Counts Rangone of Montelupo Albese, our homeland, where most of our vineyards are grown today. Rangone pinot noir-produced many years ago for just a few vintages-was the first bearer of the memory of the noble Rangone family of Montelupo Albese; today we wish to renew this tribute by dedicating the name to one of the grape varieties considered noble par excellence, Nebbiolo.

The appearance is ruby red with garnet hues on the rim. The nose is very crisp, with remarkable breadth and complexity, with notes of underbrush and wet earth in evidence. The mouth is more elegant than powerful, with a “Burgundian” atmosphere, snappy yet austere, with silky tannins that are well developed. Long and satisfying finish, with nice recall of the fruit.
Suggested serving temperature: 14-15° C.
