Langhe is a territorial Denomination, a category based on careful selection of grapes in the vineyard. For example, a Nebbiolo vineyard that produces grapes for the production of Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero and Nebbiolo d’Alba, will also produce grapes for Langhe Nebbiolo Doc, that are separated from the others and vinified differently.
Thanks to their high quality, Langhe Doc wines have earned an important place on the world market. In addition, the Langhe Denomination allows wines produced with indigenous grapes, such as Favorita and Freisa, or with international varieties, such as Chardonnay and Cabernet (if the modification to the Disciplinary body is accepted) to display a Denomination of Origin on their labels.
