Popular Wines Made From Nebbiolo Varietal Grapes:
This wine actually smells like roses. This makes the wine wonderful for celebrating special occasions, and perfect for the decanter.
Barolo and Barbaresco can only be made in a few villages in the region of Piedmont; if your vineyard is not located in one of those villages, you can’t make Barolo or Barbaresco. But Nebbiolo is grown all over the region, not just in the villages that use it to create the high-end wines.
Taste: Aromas of cherry and violets are followed by red fruit flavours of strawberries, plums and red cherries. As it matures it develops a classic aroma of ‘tar and roses’ with notes of herbs, leather, wood smoke, mushrooms and truffles.
Age: Nebbiolo can be drunk within three to four years but the finest wines, and those made in the traditional manner (aged in large old oak casks), need several years to develop and mature.
