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 »

  • What herbs/spices in the sausage? What sides?With his first recording would be ... be ... questions. Italian nebbiolo works for me, too, even north of Barolo. So would sangiovese or a Super Tuscan blend. Alternatively, a riesling Spatlese from the Rhein? West County (The True) Sonoma, or Willamette PNs. Maybe even a southern Rhone or a Priora... Read More

Ghemme.  So, yeah, all Nebbiolo from Piemonte. My wine experience of the year would be the trip I took to Paso in August when I met with Steve Peck at J.

    Wine review by Isi Vajra


  • A couple of ways to look at this pre-Christmas offer:1) why spend any money on ... years, with intense mature Nebbiolo aromatics, dry and savory; the wine is not overly tannic, but no Piemontese would ever serve this except at table, with a main-course meat dish like ossobuco or something grilled; do so and you will have a memorable treat.    ...
