Varietal: Nebbiolo

Region: Barbaresco

Region Description:

This robust red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape in the Piedmont region of Italy is full bodied, high in tannins, acidity, and alcohol. Aromas are suggestive of tar, violets, roses, strawberries, even truffles. Very similar to, if a little less full-bodied than, Barolo, it traditionally needs to be aged for at least three years in the winery (five years if it is a Reserva), but benefits from additional aging. More recent vintages are fruitier in flavor, often a bit oaky, and may be ready to drink as soon as two to five years after release.
