NEBBIOLO WINES

We celebrate the sophistication of northern Italy’s splendid Nebbiolo grape, from world-renowned Barolo to the more accessible and wallet-friendly Nebbiolo wines of the region

The Nebbiolo grape is a versatile one, of that there can be no doubt – from the majestic and powerful Barolo and Barbaresco wines of southern Piedmont to the elegant, soft tannins of the Nebbiolo wines from the Langhe. In Valtellina, to the northwest, in neighbouring Lombardy, the Nebbiolo grape is called Chiavennasca, should you happen to come across it, and the wines are definitely lighter in style, with more acidity. The grape’s name derives from la nebbia, (fog) describing the white powdery bloom on the grapes as they ripen, and the fact that the best Nebbiolo wines thrive on the hills above the fogs that envelop the region.

About Italia!

Our writers have travelled around Italy this month to bring you inspiration for your next adventures in 'il bel paese'. Lake Garda is our starting point, an ever-popular destination where quieter corners still remain – if you know where to go. We also head to the hills in Tuscany’s Casentino Forest (whose trees provided the wood for scaffolding to build Brunelleschi’s dome), and if you want to get fit, a healthy spa break in Puglia could be just what you’re looking for.
