Description: This is a complex one, with a huge variety of aromas, flavors and textures. The nose hints at lilies, lavender and rose petals, while wild berry and ollalaberry flavors combine with those of nutmeg and toasted hazelnuts and almonds. Beautifully integrated oak tannins hint of cocoa powder and apple butter.

Varietal Definition
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.
