Nebbiolo

Also indexed as:Barbaresco
Nebbiolo: Main Image

A powerful high-acid, high-tannin varietal that often needs many years of aging to begin displaying its charms. This is grown almost exclusively in Italy’s Piedmont region where it produces the wines known as Barolo and Barbaresco.

Flavor Descriptors

With classic aromatics of “tar and roses,” this is less about fruit (sour cherry, plums, and raisins) and more about earthy nuance: mushroom, freshly tilled soil, black liquorice spice, and herbaceous floral notes.

Food Pairings

Traditional

Beef roasts, venison, wild boar, wild mushroom gravy.

Modern

Steak au poivre, leg of lamb with tomatoes and garlic, pasta Bolognese.
