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 Read more »

  • One of Syrah’s problem with consumers has always been the savory nature ... plantings of Grenache and Nebbiolo have also been pretty impressive. With only 18 producers and growers and under 600 acres, out of a potential of 7,700 within the AVA under vine, it might seem that we’re making a mountain out of a molehill , but those molehills, the e...

  • Beni di Batasiolo Langhe DOC Nebbiolo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Red fruit with flora notes on the nose. Red fruit in the mouth with bright acidity followed by distinct dryness. The second day, the wine became more balanced with the fruit taking a back seat to the acidity and the finish became very dry with medium length. Read More

  • Damilano Lecinquevigne Barolo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Another wonderful one. Pale Brown Ruby in the glass, almost like a Tawny Port. Bright Cherry/Strawberry that gathers depth and becomes a deep jam taste. Dry Slate, Cocoa Mint taste, a bit of Cinnamon Leather, and a strange, but wonderful cocoa/citrus. Seems to me that this one is just beginning to age. Quite Something Read More

  • Travaglini Gattinara Riserva 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Un vino di 13 anni che conserva ancora il profumo di viola selvatica. Un vino dai tannini raffinati, di media persistenza dal colore aranciato diffuso. Sentori di mora e frutti a bacca rossa. Read More

  • To welcome fall, and without a doubt the season has arrived, like clockwork, ... at this time are the great Nebbiolo wines that so many producers bottle at fair, though increasing less affordable prices. I have devoted quite a bit of space on these pages to Barolo and the 2010 vintage, and at the same time I have also suggested that the 2011 v... Read More

  • Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Below 15 years old, 20-23 days on skins, 6 months in wood Very balsamic on the nose with a huge pine resin top note, some sweet woody notes, sweet red fruit and a hint of mint. Rather sweet/tart in the mouth, though mostly tart with lots of cranberry and raspberry flavors. This is less balsamic in the mouth than on the nose, but it retains some... Read More

  • Giovanni Sordo Nebbiolo d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Hugely balsamic on the nose, which is quite aromatic and fresh with aromas of red frutti del bosco, camphor, and a hint of something a little spicy. With high acids on entry, this comes off as a bit lean, with sour cherry, in a simple, clean and decisive style. the finish is long and fresh, if simple and easy going. 85pts Read More
