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 »

    Snoothrank:

    This is a blend of barbara and nebbiolo and both show through at different times. The nose is nebbiolo but is barbara on entry with sharp acidity and finishes with the classic dryness of the nebbiolo. I really like the blend, just wish it showed more fruit. The search continues. Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa, barbaresco 2001 A light ruby red color with a slightly orange rim. Initially, bright cherry fruit on the nose with rose petal and a woodsy mushroom undertone. Very pure nose that sang Barbaresco and with time the nose darkened and allowed the trademark of tar to rise from this wine’s bouquet. On the palette, medium bodied with ...

  • That's sounds amazing, Greg. I've had Mascerallo's Barbera and I keep on meaning to try the Barolo but have yet to have the chance. Looks like It's time to start seeking some out.
