The Elio Altare Langhe ‘La Villa’ comes from the La Morra sub-region. Only 200-250 dozen bottles are produced each year from Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes planted on south-east facing slopes. The vineyard, on clay and tufa stone soils, is farmed organically, but along traditional lines.

The grapes are crushed and then macerated on skins for 3-4 days in temperature-controlled rotary fermenters before fermentation using indigenous yeasts. The wine is matured for 18 months in new French oak barriques before bottling unfined and unfiltered.

The Elio Altare ‘La Villa’ shows an intense, ruby-red colour and equally intense aromas of plums and berries, plus rose petals. The palate typically shows fresh red fruits, balanced tannins and attractive acidity boosted by the Barbera component.

Our notes

“The 2020 La Villa (60% Barbera, 40% Nebbiolo) is a deep, powerful wine that seems to show a bit more Barbera character in its depth and overall textural intensity.  Black cherry, plum, cloves and rose petal.  There’s a ton of energy here.” 94 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2022
