Type of Grape
Nebbiolo

The pride of Piedmont, Nebbiolo is the backbone of the best Barolo and Barbaresco wines. The berries are black, medium-sized, round-elliptic, thin but with a tough, dark purple skin and a waxy appearance. Nebbiolo wines are often distinctively perfumed with an aroma described as "tar and roses", along with a moderate body, strong, tannic backbone and high, fresh acidity.

The region
Barbaresco – Piemont

One of Piedmont's greatest wine regions, Barbaresco is one among the best expressions of the Nebbiolo grapes. The vines are generally grown on limestone-rich marl soils on steep, "pre-alpine" hills – a characteristic of the region. The vineyards are situated to best "ensure a suitable ripening of the grapes", effectively meaning most Barbaresco vineyard sites have some (if not an entire) southerly exposure.
