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 »

  • I was delighted to be able to join so many Nebbiolo lovers at Convivio last week for a wonderful look back at the Produttori wines from 1978-1990. I have long been a fan of and proponent for the Produttori and it is great to see them getting the respect that they deserve.We had a broad range of both vintages and vineyards prepared for this tasti...

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 1978

    Snoothrank:

    This offered up a rather unusual combination of beef broth, dried tomato, and cooked bean starch tones that may be due to this bottle seeing a bit of heat along the way. None-the-less there are nice hot iron and faded baking spice notes that keep the nose fresh and interesting. In the mouth this comes off rather soft and elegant with a tapered, ... Read More

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montefico 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Again offering a wonderful array of aromatics this started off with notes of leather and dried rose then turned smoky and exotic with tea tones, some chamomile and even a hint of jasmine. Eventually turning savory and deep with a tarry edge and a hint of shoeblack. Richly fruited though still slightly drying this offered up waves of layered flav... Read More

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo 1978

    Snoothrank:

    This was wonderfully layered with a deep base of dried fruits and baked plums over which one found dried bay leaf, smoky earthy tones, asphalt and top notes of herbs, nettles and just a touch of ass. Aggressive and a touch astringent in the mouth this none-the-less is wonderfully precise and faceted with deep, extracted black fruits and spice to... Read More

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montefico 1978

    Snoothrank:

    A bit baked on the nose with notes of clay tile, baked raspberry and hints of burnt marshmallow and, leather and cooked bean starch. Sweet with lovely integrated structure and a fine lightness, this remains fresh and elegant with round fruit but does have a bit of a drop out on the middle. The rich wild berry and wild plum tones pick up again an... Read More
