NEBBIOLO

Nebbiolo should be on your radar if you prefer your wines to be large, strong, and red. This grape originated in Northern Italy's Piedmont area and is famed for creating robust, full-bodied, and viciously tannic wines—all while seeming as pale as Pinot Noir! The impact of Italian immigrants in the early history of California's wine industry introduced Nebbiolo to the United States in the nineteenth century.

Nebbiolo is an Italian red wine grape variety that is indigenous to Piedmont. Nebbiolo is called after the Italian nebbia or Piedmontese nebia, which means "fog." It produces light-colored, tannic, rose- and tar-scented young red wines.

The wines develop a distinctive brick-orange hue around the lip of the glass as they age, revealing additional aromas and flavors such as violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, tobacco, and prunes.

What does Nebbiolo taste like?

Tasting Nebbiolo wines may be an enthralling experience because the floral and delicate red fruit scents make the wine appear much lighter than it is. Nebbiolo has a leathery, grasping high tannin that seems to clasp the inside of your lips to the front of your teeth when you taste it.

Despite its tannic structure, the wine's rich tastes of cherry and raspberries, complemented by rose and anise scents, always manage to show through. Nebbiolo becomes herbaceous in cooler years, with more tart cherry fruit, rosehip and leather, and red clay minerality.

Nebbiolo wines seem light, but they also smell light, with deceptive red fruit and rose scents flowing about the nose. Everything changes the moment it enters your mouth. If you didn't know what "grippy tannins" were before, you would know as the leathery goodness clings to your teeth, tongue, and gums. Expect dramatic notes of cherry, coffee, anise, and primordial earth to follow.
