Nebbiolo

For the graphic arts firm and type foundry, see Nebiolo PrintechNebbiolo (Italian), or Nebieul (Piedmontese) is a red Italian wine grape variety predominantly associated with the Piedmont region where it makes the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wines of Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and Ghemme. Nebbiolo is thought to derive its name from the Italian word nebbia which means "fog." During harvest, which generally takes place late in October, a deep, intense fog sets into the Langhe region where many Nebbiolo vineyards are located.

  • Scarpa Barbaresco Tettineive 1999

    … Scarpa is one of those very classic producers, like Borgogno and Lopez de Heredia, that has huge stocks of old wine they are happy to release to consumers at very reasonable prices. This has particular signigficance when it comes to high end Nebbiolo, which, when traditionally made like these are, does not present well before 10 years of ageing…

    … legacy Nebbiolo producer Paolo Scavino. She was staying at Nomad, not too far from Marta, and she had stopped in for dinner for one at the bar. I was so glad to meet her and she was super nice and fun to talk to. And at the table next to ours? Yes, you guessed it, the hardest working man in the wine podcast business, the inimitable Levi Dalton, once…

The wine was served in Riedel glasses and the bottle was decanted for us. Our meal began with a cauliflower bisque served with herb oil and beet chips. Green Dragon then opted for the roasted beet salad while…

  • Regarnir la cave

    … Après le temps des Fêtes et les multiples réunions de familles et d’amis, l’amateur de vin se retrouvera souvent devant une cave significativement plus vide qu’au début décembre. Faudra penser à la regarnir, tant qu’à y être, le faire de manière intelligente… Surtout, ne pas paniquer à la vue des emplacements vides dans les racks. On ne…

In white wines, there are 2 very good values under $14 - the extra-dry Garganega from Veneto and the dry (slightly sweet) Weissburgunder (a.k.a. Pinot Blanc) from Germany. If you want to try an Old…

    … the Nebbiolo-based juice. We've all been trained to expect boisterous wine when sipping Barbaresco but this seemed more like a big Pinot or Gamay. It couldn't have been that bad, however, I did go back for a second glass after all. I suppose there's as much good to be found in red fruit as there is in brooding, dark fruit - especially when paired with salami…

  • Making the Case–for Barbaresco

    … It’s time to put away the preconceptions and admit to the fact that Barbaresco can be just as great as Barolo. I’ve been a fan of Barolo for as long as I’ve been into wine. It’s just something about its imposing nature and how Barolo makes you wait for it to blossom. There’s a challenge in loving Barolo, as you have to study and pay close…

Cherries, earth, truffles, wood, anise, and old leather on the nose. Ripe red cherries (dried cherries too) on the palate with anise, truffle, wood, and earth notes. Tart fruit and nice acidity. Tannins are present and drying but not aggressive. Alcohol is a bit out of balance even after decanting. 3/5 bones $$$$$ Nebbiolo 14.5% abv Barolo, ITALY …
