Sciulun of Franco Conterno

Sciulun Langhe Rosso by Franco Conterno

Langhe is the hilly sub-region east of the Tanaro river and south of Alba, in the Cuneo province of Piedmont. The name “Langhe” is the plural form of “Langa”, a local word for a long, low-lying hill (http://www.wine-searcher.com/regions-langhe).

The Red pairs excellently with meat like beef or lamb and of course, pasta!
