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 »

    This wine really opens up and develops over time. Dusty nose of spices and raspberries. Very pretty fruit with a sour cherry backbone. Very versatile with a bunch of different dishes that were eaten with this wine. Even tasted ok with artichoke. Read More

  • Michele Chiarlo 2005

    Snoothrank:
