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:

Velvety on the palate with Raspberry and Cherry fruit, tobacco and cedar box. A nice finish of cranberry and savory herds. Moderate tannins that sho... Read More

  • Mascarello/Bartolo Barolo 2000

    Snoothrank:

    we knew we were drinking this young, so we gave it about 6 hours of decanting, with some sips along the way.Nose of bright berry fruit, nice acidity, tea, spices, plum compote, more strawberries, and red licorice. It became more integrated by the time we were ready to drink it, but it was still very tight, and only starting to show its dimension... Read More
