Guide to Nebbiolo Wine
Nebbiolo (nay-bee-OH-loh), produced at its best, is capable of producing the biggest, most full-bodied wines in the world with intense concentration and firm tannins. The flavor and aroma profiles include dark fruit, primarily blackberry with loads of complex flavors including smoke, tar, licorice and rustic notes. The prominent wines of northern Italy, Barolo and Barbaresco are produced from this renowned red-wine grape. Nebbiolo also contains wonderful acidity, therefore, a tremendous food wine, pairing wonderfully with hearty red meats and heavy sauces.
