Nebbiolo

The Nebbiolo wines from Barolo and Barbaresco are the ones we look most forward to when the fall approaches and the thought of braised meats, mushrooms and truffles makes us drool!

 

Few grape varieties can do, what Nebbiolo can. Its drying tannins and high acidity can make the wines strict and harsh, but oh, the sweet perfume of rose petals, cherries and local truffles is truly captivating. With a few years of bottle age, the structure will start to soften up a bit and one of the world's most magnificent wines will unfold.

 

In Piemonte, as throughout the world, grace, finesse and light red fruit seem to be the trend these days, and the village of Verduno in Barolo is where many wine drinkers are turning their attention, especially wines from the great Monvigliero vineyard. You can once in a while be lucky to them it for sale among the many classically well-known Barolo producers.
