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 »

    Smoky on the nose with smolder vine clippings on a damp morning with a bit of herb and sandy soil tones thrown in. Has a bit of a hand sanitizer/camphor tone to the slightly roasted raspberry fruits. Big acids wash over tha palate on entry followed by ripe, soft tannins. This is a touch simple but with excellent intensity to the juicy wild red b... Read More

  • There's a lot of discussion of destemming practices in Burgundy and the Rhone, ... anyone discussing it.Given nebbiolo's high tannins, I can see the argument for leaving them out. But I assume that they were traditionally included. Has there been a change in this practice? Many recent Baroli are free from mouth-puckering tannins. Could this... Read More
