 Tasted by Anonymous on 4/11/2015 & rated 94 points: Is Barbaresco actually better than Barolo? This wine at least could make one pose the question. While Barolos often are like a science experiment, this wine has a warmth and charm to it missing from its Germanic brethren in Piedmont ( as I said in another review, I consider Barolo to really be THE German red wine par excellence but in Italian garb, it is just Germanic to the extreme ).

This wine was maybe vegetal at first, with something slightly sour or flat to the taste. The next day it had transformed into an atmospheric and vinous masterpiece with a perfect melding of flavors in the dark spectrum. Flowing and velvety, warm and Chambolle-like, though I've only had one cheap Chambolle... Like night distilled into the glass. By the way, I love the label, but a friend considers this to be a lapse of taste. (134 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.
