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 »

  • Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vigna San Giuseppe Bricco Boschis 1999

    Snoothrank:

    What a nose on this. Layered with dried floral tones, orange rind, minerals, black spices, a touch of tar and nuanced green anise seed and herb round out a remarkably still open nose. Powerful int he mouth with a luxurious richness. Perfectly balanced plush fruit draped over ripe tannins with perfectly integrated mouth watering acidity. This tig... Read More

  • Giancarlo Travaglini Gattinara DOCG 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Potpourri and spices on the nose. On the palette, plums, almost jammy and the tannins are little drying. Big fruity flavor and a good amount of tannin that will liky result in a very nice bottle of wine in a few years but I feel there's a lack of acidity here that may take away fromt his bottles life span. however, with all that said, a great...

  • Podere Rocche Dei Manzoni Barolo Vigna Cappella di Santo Stefano 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Buttery and lightly oaky on the nose which still reveals a core of wity fruit with classic red berry and tar notes. There is an initial wood flooring note that is off putting in the mouth and leads to a drying finish but the mid-palate reveals solid roasted blackberry and olive fruit. Tough to assess at this age but not without promise. 2014-202... Read More

  • Oddero Barolo 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Another fine bottle yet this one was a touch leaner than the last. Still full of animal funk on the nose though the herbal quality was a bit more pronounced with an almost green coffee bean edge. In the mouth the wines dances across the palate with it's wonderful structural integration. There is plenty of sour cherry fruit and a decidedly tertia... Read More
