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:

    Dusty and evolved with bookbinders glue, chocolate pound cake, rum raisin ice cream and light wrapper tobacco leaf tones, except it didn't smell quite as good as all that. It's a touch hot in the mouth and has good length and a nice succulence but not enough flesh to conceal this still rather substantial strucutreal componenets. Seaweed and herb... Read More

  • Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Monfalletto 1971

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty, meaty and slow to open with a fair touch of dried herb and seaweed up front but slowly the candied black raspberry tones grow and flesh out a frame of mossy greenness, beef bouillon and a lovely mint nuance. The entry is brightly acidic and leads to a slightly spicy mid-palate rich with red fruits and a touch of pink peppercorn. The finis... Read More
