 Tasted by ParkHill on 2/7/2007 & rated 89 points: Second tasting confirms my feelings from first bottle. Doesn't explode, but has good balance: just enough tannin, fruit and tartness to be very drinkable and tasty (yeah, like most barbarescos). Stays even for next 24 hours, rather than open or fade. I would buy this one again. (1586 views)
 Tasted by ParkHill on 1/12/2007 & rated 89 points: Nice and fruity. A little tart. Opened and improved finish over the next 24 hours. (1433 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.
