Buy Nebbiolo Wines Online
Originated in Italy, Nebbiolo red wine grape is thought to have been named after the Italian word ‘nebbia’ which means ‘fog’. This is because the grape is ideally harvested in the month of October, during which intense fog sets on to the Langhe region (One of the largest Nebbiolo wine producing regions). Another explanation suggests that the grape variety is named so because of the milky, fog-like veil that forms over the Nebbiolo berries upon maturation.
Wines made using the Nebbiolo grape variety are known for their signature high acidity, powerful tannins and distinct rose and tar fragrances. These wines generally offer blackberry and dark fruit notes that are complemented by intense and complex flavours of tar, liquorice, smoke and rustic notes. Heavy sauces and flavoursome meat dishes match perfectly with Nebbiolo wines.
