Nebbiolo is considered the noble grape of Piedmont, and some would argue all of Italy.  It has everything you could want in a red varietal:  robust aromas of rose petals, spice and leather; scintillating acidity; loads of bright cherry fruit; tannins that reach ’til tomorrow; and ageability.

Historically speaking, Nebbiolo is near Biblical.  It was alluded to during the 1st century by Pliny the Elder as creating wines of exceptional quality.  In the 15th century, laws were put in place that anyone found cutting down a Nebbiolo vine might pay a hefty fine – or have his right hand cut off.

So why is it not part of our American vernacular of prime wine grapes? Your guess is as good as mine, but at this tasting we aim to change that by showcasing some of Barolo’s best.
