Nebbiolo is a traditional Italian grape grown almost exclusively in Piedmont and some parts of northern Lombardy. Nebbiolo grapes ripen late and are harvested in the Autumn when thick fogs cover the vineyards of Piedmont, hence the name Nebbiolo (nebbia is the Italian word for fog). Notoriously difficult to grow, Nebbiolo wines tend to be medium to full-bodied with chewy tannins and high acidity. Its natural characteristics make Nebbiolo wines ideal for ageing. When young, Nebbiolo wines tend to have aromas of plum, cherry, and strawberry. As Nebbiolo wines age they develop the classic tar and rose characteristics they are famous for.
