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 Cortese Langhe Nebbiolo 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Medium red ruby in the glass with aromas of Plum, anise and with a underlying layer of musky, forest floor. On the palate, sour cherries, prune and hint of citrus. Very fresh at first that turns to an earthy, minerally finish which comes off as a little drying with rough tannin. I'm assuming that the initial richness of this Barbaresco follow... Read More

  • Ok, so I am delinquent. I have been so busy preparing for my trip to drink ... ... to go ahead and add a few nebbiolo notes.Starting off the Guiseppe Rinaldis fan-fricken-tastic Langhe Nebbiolo. Now this can be pricy but then again it's 100% Barolo juice that simply doesn't fit into the final blend. Ravera juice I've been told. In any event th... Read More

  • Roagna Barolo Rocca 1999

    Snoothrank:

    a captivatingly spicy nose full of caraway, cardamon and tumeric with a stemmy notes and dried floral tones. In the mouth this was slightly jammy yet had the sweet/astringent quality of my beloved lingonberries, though the actual flavor profile was dark berry fruit over blue shale/clay and a return of the middle eastern spice notes found on the ...

  • Barbaresco Santo Stefano Riserva Bruno Giacosa 1985

    Snoothrank:

    sweet perfumed nose of seared fruit and flowers over background notes of celery seed, rust and braised fennel that is exceptionally aromatic and precise. There is a subtle gaminess to the fruit on the palate which is sweetly fruited with wild raspberry fruit and hints of mica and fireplace ash. This is elegant and succulent though it seems to ha...

  • Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 1985

    Snoothrank:

    As usual a wonderful wine with a rich forest floor tone on the nose followed by minty and light clay notes with a lingering hint of cigar smoke. This is wonderfully fresh and soil driven on the nose with hints of camphor and icy mint setting off the precise spicy fruit. Entering with a wave of sweet, ripe fruit and then transitioning to a layere... Read More

  • Guiseppe Rinaldi Barolo Riserva Brunate 1985

    Snoothrank:

    a stinky touch of funky slavonian oak notes right out of the bottle and a touch of oxidative sweetness that reinforced the sweet anise tones that initially dominated the nose. Growing elements of earth, sand and iron added to the aromatics with a touch of menthol lurking. In the mouth this was rich and round with chewy, slightly matte fruit that... Read More

  • Scarpa Barolo Tettimorra 1990

    Snoothrank:

    The nose here starts out with decidedly oxidized notes and lovely hints of salame and caraway with spicy mint and herb undertones. There's an odd sweetness to the nose that recalls fishermens friend cough lozenges and sweet flowers. the nose does clean up with air but remains savory. In the mouth one is greeted by a rush of wild strawberry fruit... Read More
