    The 2016 Langhe Larigi, a pure expression of Barbera from old vines and with only 2,500 bottles produced, is a beautiful wine with bright ripeness and lush fruit. Semi-crunchy in nature, it also has some muscle under the hood with a 15.5% alcohol content. The finish is fresh and bright. Try it with the famous local tajarin (rich egg-yolk pasta), without giving a second thought to all that cholesterol and the volume of alcohol you are consuming. By the way, Elio Altare is now 69 years old, and he counts 54 vintages under his belt.
