 Tasted by Sepsis on 6/25/2014 & rated 94 points: Feminine, tight and elegant, but still incredible depth. Red berries and menthol rounded up by a floral and mineral expression. Already accessible with decanting. (414 views)
 Tasted by NostraBacchus on 5/4/2014 & rated 92 points: Shiny ruby color. Very pretty nose of sweet red cherries, flowers, some menthol and licorice. It's opening up significantly with some air. On the palate there are beautiful notes of red cherries again, also crushed flowers, some minerals, licorice and some menthol. Medium-bodied with medium+ tannin and medium acidity. Good length. This is a very pretty Barbaresco with beautiful aromatics for medium-term consumption. (92+) (1030 views)
 Tasted by peternelson on 11/1/2013 & rated 91 points: Perfume, patchuli, dried roses, lovely aromatic nose; elegant, huge drying tannins however. These should soften up, really nice, great QPR. (520 views)
 Tasted by yofog on 9/24/2012 & rated 91 points: A soft, velvety texture, refined tannin, very softly floral in character. A lovely wine with good potential. (759 views)

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is a red grape indigenous to the Piedmont region of Italy in the Northwest. The grape can also be found in other parts of the world, though they are not as respected.

Nebbiolo is often considered the "king of red wines," as it is the grape of the famed wines of Barolo DOCG, Barbaresco DOCG, and Roero DOCG. It is known for high tannins and acidity, but with a distinct finesse. When grown on clay, Nebbiolo can be very powerful, tannic, and require long aging periods to reach its full potential. When grown on sand, the grape exhibits a more approachable body with more elegant fruit and less tannins, but still has high aging potential.

"Nebbiolo" is named for the Italian word, "nebbia", which means "fog", in Italian and rightfully so since there is generally a lot of fog in the foothills of Piedmont during harvest.

Nebbiolo is a late-ripening variety that does best in a continental climate that boasts moderate summers and long autumns. In Piedmont, Nebbiolo is normally harvested in October.
