Nebbiolo Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Considered perhaps the finest grape of Italy. Our 100% Nebbiolo, grown on the west side of Paso Robles, is aged in American and French oak for 30 months. The wine is of the softer variety making it easy and likeable. Before you know it, the bottle is empty!

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.
