esbrown reviewed Elio Altare La Villa Langhe Rosso 2003 on July 29, 2006
A blend of Barbera and Nebbiolo, the '03 La Villa is a dark and mysterious wine with loads of tobacco, white pepper and juicy blackberry aromas and flavors that range from rich black cherries to typical Barbera dustiness and tobacco followed by hints of new oak. The finish is long and chewy, with lots of acidity and tannin. Could use a year or two in the cellar.
