Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is an indigenous Italian grape variety, noble and famous, responsible for the top quality wines from northwestern Piedmont in Italy particularly, Barolo and Barbaresco. Very coveted, some specimens can reach very high prices. It is an old grape variety first referenced in the 13th century. The name Nebbiolo derives from the word "nebbia", which in Italian means "fog". Some think it got its name from the white flowering, which occurs during harvest time and resembles a fog. Others think it evokes the mist surrounding the vines at harvest time at the end of October. Nebbiolo is a very capricious grape. It's closely linked to the characteristics of the soil. Depending on the parcel, where it is grown, it can have very different flavours. The excellence of Nebbiolo production is in the Langhe, especially in Barolo and Barbaresco (Piedmont) and Valtellina (Lombardy). Outside these areas, Nebbiolo grapes no longer have the depth, strength and nobility that make them unique in the world so, they are practically only grown here. Nebbiolo is a bold, full-bodied, tannic wine with high and fresh acidity. Ruby red colour when young they quickly evolve to garnet orange. They exhibit aromas often described as perfumed aromas: fruit and flowers and then scrub with mushrooms, hummus and sometimes dried leaves, tobacco and leather. Floral, balsamic, tannic and full-bodied are intense wines with intrinsic longevity.
