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 »

  • Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Santo Stefano di Perno 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A little weedy and spicy on the nose with clay and forest floor nuances. There is an exotic citrus tone on the nose but overall a very loamy soil tone dominates. In the mouth this is packed with rich plum and cherry fruit, crisp tannins that lend a nice edge of austerity, and tones of peach pit and spice on the moderate finish. Very good and wel... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Was a bargain, but not great. Very tight and biting, all the way through. Too heavy on tannin and alcohol without any fruit to balance. A bit raisiny. Read More

  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Sorry to hear that this was not a sublime bottle. At its best, this is Barolo at its peak. Lots of pure red fruit, iron, soy, aome animal blood and a tremendous amount of structure... I'd put this in the top 2 or 3 bottles of Italian ever enjoyed... at its best...which sadly cannot always be predicted... Read More

  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Even after being double decanted for 8 hours this was a bit reticent out of the bottle. Hightoned with notes of oyster sauce and sweet soy lifted by a touch of VA this evolved slowly but surely becoming quite smoky and sweetly vegetal resembling tomato ketchup based barbq sauce for a period. With time the smokiness took over and the wine added s... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva Speciale Villero 1978

    Snoothrank:

    At first this offer a deep, blue clay toned nose that slowly gained in intensity adding notes of spice, ash, musky flowers and ranier cherry. In the mouth this was big and rich with deep, fleshy fruit supported by lots of very finely grained tannins. The fruit was at the dark berry end of the spectrum with a medicinal tone and a brown spiced ani... Read More

  • Vietti Masseria Barbaresco 1978

    Snoothrank:

    This just looked fantastic with a pale yet very rosy color. The nose initially ... and anise in a classic aged Nebbiolo bouquet. In the mouth this was beautiful, clean and precise with lovely bright tannins, crisp and even a touch juicy with delicate dried raspberry fruit that had great length and purity. Ultimately it was a touch simple but a... Read More

  • Ceretto Brunate Barolo 1978

    Snoothrank:

    A damaged bottle but still had some Brunate character. A fat nose of meaty carob, dried beef, stale coffee, cedar and slight mocha tones is followed by a rather soft but texturally expansive palate that featured muddied flavors of burnished cherry fruit. The finish has clumsy tannins and lacks a bit of flesh so comes of as hot. 84pts Read More
