Varietal: Nebbiolo
Country: Italy
Region: Piedmont

Producer: Guidobono

Nebbiolo is the most noble Italian grape, but it is finicky and as it requires just the right site it represents only 3% of Piedmont’s total production. Much like Pinot Noir it is sensitive to micro-climate and seems particularly suited to the expression of terroir. Of course Barolo and neighbouring Barbaresco are the famous wines that made its reputation. But the area surrounding these two communes is called the Langhe, and it too can produce really fine wine. Guidobono’s is a lovely example, showing violets and roses on the nose, rich fruit on the palate, and a long, fine finish.
