Nebbiolo

Name of varietal: Nebbiolo

 
Common synonyms: Spanna, Picutener and Chiavennasca.
 
Parentage of the grape: Debatable whether it is indigenous to Piedmont or first plantings in Valtellina in Lombardy, Italy. 
 
History of the grape: Two schools of thought exist as to the origins of Nebbiolo (which means “little fog” either for the Piedmontese autumn weather or the frosty appearance of the mature grapes). One is that it is indigenous to Piedmont, Italy. The other is that it was first planted in Valtellina, a valley within the Lombardy region, where it was then brought to Piedmont. There is some suggestion that in the 1st century, Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder gave high regard to a wine made in what is now the Barolo region, attributing to it similar characteristics associated with Nebbiolo. In the 13th century, there is reference to a wine called “nebili” from a grape that was growing near Rivoli outside of Turin. More concrete written history Read more »

  • The Best Nebbiolo/Barolo has been compared to the finest Burgundy. Giacosa vs. DRC. - I do understand the relation and contrast/ comparison. Pinot fans will love 2007's and 2009's. Domaine De la Romanee Conti vs. Bruno's Finest.

  • I found an excellent nebbiolo from L.A. Cetto in Baja California, on the region of Calafia valley. we found 2 big winneries, one from Domeq and the one from Cetto plus about 20 small winneries in the area, producing excelent wines, too bad we were only allowed one bottle per adult coming thru the border.

  • Honestly, I saw this a couple of days ago and didn't say anything because I wanted to make sure it wasn't a mistake, but my order has been confirmed and the package has been shipped. The weight on the fedex tracking looks right. So I figure it's about time to share with my fellow Nebbiolo lovers..... Get it while you can, a $40 Barolo that dr...
