From the northwestern wine region of Piedmont, Italy, this wine stars the signature grape variety of the region, Nebbiolo. This grape is renowned for it's gripping tannins, high acidity, and unique scent. The varietal name, Nebbiolo, comes from the Italian word nebbia, which means fog. Vineyards in this region of Italy are commonly cloaked in fog during the autumn mornings.
This Barolo is garnet, with slight hues of orange, as the Nebbiolo grape is known for transforming from a deep red to a brick orange after a few years of aging. On the nose, this wine has notes of graphite, ripe plum, tar, and berries. On the palette, this powerful red is bracing, savory, and brightly acidic.
Enjoy this wine decanted and served with your favorite structured dish of red meat, lamb, or game!
