Nebbiolo

Tantalising, intensely aromatic, robust tannins, rose petals, autumn undergrowth, haunting bouquet, savoury, all describe this unique grape variety. Nebbiolo is considered by most to be Italy’s most noble red grape, often called the “King of Italian Wines”. The Piemonte region of northern Italy is the viticultural home of Nebbiolo, with history dating back to at least the 13th century. The name of the grape is thought to derive from “nebbia”, that either relates to the fog (nebbia) in the hills of Piemonte at harvest time, or the fog-like cover of the skins of the dark gray Nebbiolo grape.
