Barbera, Larigi Langhe, 2020

5 cases
Equiv. £46.67 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A really superb Larigi, one of the best we’ve tasted, the 2020 is alluring and juicy fruited with a suave, cool plum, dark cherry and hedgerow character. Gorgeously plush tannins and some sophisticated oak and toasted notes offset discreetly high levels of refreshing acidity. A stunning 70-year-old, south-facing Barbera parcel sitting at the top of the Arborina vineyard. Flavescence Doree is badly impacting the Barbera grape in Barolo, so the long-term yield is on a steady downward trajectory. Fermented and aged for 18 months in new oak barriques.
