Nebbiolo Reserve Wine Details
Price: $31.99 per bottle

Description: A true example of the beauty and power of the most acclaimed varietal in Italian viticulture. Elegant and complex with tar, smoke, blackberry and tobacco notes. Full bodied, with a firm, dense structure followed by a seamless and lasting finish. The wine improves with age and turns into a real gem.

Varietal Definition
The red grape of Barolo and Barbaresco from the Piedmont region of Northwest Italy. Named after the word 'nebbia', or fog in Italian, which rises around the hills of Alba, the famous truffle countryside. It is noted for its high acidity and 'mouth puckering' tannins and its distinct bouquet of black cherries, liquorice and leather. A top Barolo will take years to soften but when mature will evolve the vegetal, gamy characteristics for which this Italian classic is famous. The colour on ageing Nebbiolo wines fades rapidly to form a distinctive brownish rim.
