Vineyard description:

Vignane shares many characteristics with Cannubi but does not possess the latter’s aromatic complexity. Vignane has always been planted to Nebbiolo (even when Barbera was a better cash crop in the early 1900’s) and the wines show softness and elegance, and a distinct mid-palate mouthfeel that enhances the sense of richness when combined with other, more austere grapes.

Modern and Traditional

LangheMuch ink has been spilled over the divide between modern and traditional winemaking in Barolo over the last 20 years. Luciano uses practices from both schools of thought, not wanting to limit himself to just one way of working.
