The wine is driven by floral notes accented by brushwood and spices fill the nose and then follow suit on the palate; accompanied by bright cherry tones, red plum, forest floor, fresh acidity, and gripping tannins. The Livio Voghera Langhe Nebbiolo is a wine that benefits from some decanting.
Voghera’s 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a beautiful representation of the quality of fruit the Voghera estate has with Nebbiolo. A lovely southwestern
exposed hillside vineyard of twenty years is harvested in early October and brought to the cellar for a soft pressing and fermentation in stainless
steel. Aging in large and old French oak barrels for about a year leads to a complex yet harmonious and very balanced red wine.
Pairings: rich dishes such as roasts and wild game, or strong, hard cheeses.
Luigi Voghera is nestled smack dab in the middle of Barbaresco country in Piemonte, in a small village called Tetti, situated between the three main
towns of the region: Treiso, Neive, & Barbaresco. In 1974, Luigi and his wife Pinuccia, officially opened up their lovely winery to focus on what their
estate fruit could do best. Luigi has since passed on, but his son Livio has followed in his father's footsteps to a tee, and makes extraordinary wine
from their sustainably farmed 22 hectares of vineyards. Livio has a small but beautiful cellar full of large old oak barrels to help age some of his
wines, while still retaining as much specific varietal character from his grapes.
Although Barbaresco is the true flagship of Livio's property, he is able to bring out a perfect and classic expression from every grape that he works with. As he has expanded his standard line of Nebbiolo and Barbera further, his Favorita, Arneis, and even Moscato are all precise and exquisite as well. Each and every year Livio strives to work more and more with the native flora and fauna for a wholistic production, and it shows in the love that you taste in the bottle.
