The smoothness and refinement of a Langhe red wine by Ugo Lequio

The estate

Ugo Lequio founded the eponymous winery in 1980 with the ambition of making fine Piedmont wines. Its terroir, located in particular on the hills of the Neive-Borgonovo village, lead to the production of wines that are unanimously renowned for their elegance and broad aromatic range.

The vineyard

This 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo by Ugo Lequio is made from the Castellizzano vineyard in the Treiso area. Planted in 2000, this northwest facing terroir is located at an altitude of 400 metres.

The vinification and ageing

Vinification for 6 to 7 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Aged for 5 to 6 months in French oak barrels.

The blend

Nebbiolo (100%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This wine gives us a sneak peek at the upcoming vintage from Barbaresco. The 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo shows some ripeness with sweet aromas of wild strawberry and blackberry confit. The wine is soft and succulent in the mouth with rich and fleshy contours. The heat of the vintage has left its mark on the opulent fruit presented here.
