La Ganghija, Barbaresco and more

Our friend and passionate wine producer Enzo Rapalino has just released his 2015 vintage of Barbaresco. Based in Treiso near Alba Enzo farms over 10ha’s prducing mainly Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes.

We were lucky enough to visit Enzo in September 2017 to see his work at close hand.

The Langhe is a magical place and it’s easy to see why Enzo was inspired to start his own winery working with the family vineyards whose grapes had previously been sold to outside producers.

His 2015 promises to be one of the best vintages of La Ganghija Barbaresco we have imported yet. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what Decanter had to say about it in their 2018 DWWA
competition:

 
“Generous and open, complex and broad with beautifully layers of ripe red cherry and black berry fruit.
Fleshy and rounded with a herbal intensity, smoke, spice and a super elegant finish. “
Platinum Medal, 97 pts.

 
La Ganghija Barbaresco available from Honest2Goodness wines from mid-November 2018
