Ugo Lequio Nebbiolo Langhe
Fine, delicate, persistent and characteristic bouquet with hints of wild berries.
- Piedmont, Italy
Starting in the early 1980s, Ugo released his first bottles of wine following rigorous fruit selection from the six-hectare Cascina Nuova vineyard. This historic property is located on the sun-drenched Gallina Hill that was once part of the Neive Conti Riccardi Candiani patrimony and now belongs to the Marcarino family. Years later, thanks to experience and experimentation in both the vineyard and the winery, Ugo Lequio has emerged as one of the protagonist of the revolutionary shift that means he producers quality wine over quantity.
"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." Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
"Ruby red color tending to garnet. Fine, delicate, persistent and characteristic bouquet with hints of wild berries. Pleasantly bitter taste, velvety of good complexity, fresh and persistent in the finish." Ugo Lequio
