| ||Tasted by MichaelJennings on 12/14/2012 & rated 89 points: Very nice, fully mature bottle. A bit modern for my taste, with plenty of oak and forward fruit. But still clearly a Barbaresco: violets, rose petals, a hint of tar. (1179 views)|
| ||Tasted by RobertDwyer on 5/17/2010 & rated 93 points: I was really looking forward to trying this 2001 after going so gonzo for the 2004. It was just about everything I hoped for. As expected the tannins have softened nicely, but there's still a good amount of grip. The flavor profile is what I really love about this wine. Cherries, rose petals, and just a hint of tar. Really beautiful wine. The kind of wine you want to seek out and buy more of before it's all gone. (2840 views)|
| ||Tasted by nschmidt on 12/20/2009 & rated 92 points: Totally enjoyed this bottle fireside with some mixed nuts. Drinking beautifully with some significant but smooth tannins. (2549 views)|
| ||Tasted by millwhat on 2/3/2008: Fresh cherries, with medium smooth tannins. perfect with gutsy Italian fish with tomatoes and olives. Delicious and drinking now (2825 views)|

NebbioloNebbiolo 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.
