Nebbiolo Wine Details
Price: $39.95 per bottle

Description: Nebbiolo takes its name from the Italian "nebbia" (fog) that forms over the vineyards during harvest season. This beloved Ponte wine is a very dry, full-bodied wine with tastes of dried plums, raspberries, roses and truffles. The robust aromas and flavors of Nebbiolo are best with game, roasted lamb, grilled steak, hearty winter stews and smoked meats. Nebbiolo has developed an avid, dedicated following and we are proud to release it once again

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.
