Nebbia · Los Pinos Vineyards Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Inspired by the low morning fog that sometimes hovers just above our vineyards. Nebbia, Italian for fog, is our very limited barrel fermented dry white wine! Silky soft, it fills the palette with flavors reminiscent of peaches and cream, and subtle toasty buttery nuances.

Varietal Definition
Nebbiolo:
The red grape of Barolo and Barbaresco from the Piedmont region of Northwest Italy. Named after the word 'nebbia', or fog in Italian, which rises around the hills of Alba, the famous truffle countryside. It is noted for its high acidity and 'mouth puckering' tannins and its distinct bouquet of black cherries, liquorice and leather. A top Barolo will take years to soften but when mature will evolve the vegetal, gamy characteristics for which this Italian classic is famous. The colour on ageing Nebbiolo wines fades rapidly to form a distinctive brownish rim.
