Types of Wine : Nebbiolo

Meet Nebbiolo, the grape responsible for Italy's full-bodied Barolos and Barbarescos, the noble (and pricey) red wines of Italy's Piedmont region.

About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo-based Barolos are rich, rose-scented wines, robust and tannic, capable of (and often requiring) long aging. With age, Nebbiolo's rough tannic edges soften and flavors of plum and cherry are enhanced by flavors of smoke, tar, and roses. Unfortunately, Barolos are often quite spendy. The more affordable choice? Try Barolo's cousin, the elegant Barbaresco, which generally doesn't demand the years of aging that Barolos do. They're typically ready to pop when you're ready to drink.

Rich foods are wise and wonderful matches for Piedmont's robust reds. Game and other meats pair particularly well with earthy, full-bodied Barolo and Barbaresco.
