2017 – Barilà Langhe D.o.c Nebbiolo

 22,90

This wine is a blend of Nebbiolo and Cabernet Franc, produced using grapes which, from year to year, we decide are not suitable for Barolo. As a result of the expansion of our company’s production area, Barilà Langhe is also made with grapes from newly planted vines, which we deem not to be mature enough to produce grapes that yield a great Barolo.
