Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is a dark skinned grape that is used to produce red wine It is most famours for making the rose and tar aroma of Barolo wines produced in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. The name of the grape is evocative of its home in the foothills of the western Alps. Nebbia is Italian for fog, which arrives in the early mornings in October. The Nebbiolo grape is harvested during this time. Producing light colored red wines, Nebbiolo grapes are known for making wines that can be quite tannic when young. As these same wines age, the characteristics tend to take on a brick-orange hue at the rim of the glass. When fully matured, the wines finally reveal other flavors and aromas such as wild herbs, violets, tar, raspberries, cherries, tobacco, prunes, and truffles. Nebbiolo wines often require years of aging in order to balance the tannins with the other characteristics. Wines from Nebbiolo grapes have large amounts of tannin and acid. The majority of wines are built for aging, in fact, some of the highest quality vintages need to age at least a decade. Some vintages can age upwards of 30 years when the bouquet becomes appealing and much more complex. Other Nebbiolo aromas include leather, dried fruit, damsons, mulberries, fresh and dried herbs, and mulberries.

Damilano Barolo Brunate 2016

Damilano Barolo Brunate is made from 100 percent Nebbiolo 100%

When the wine ages, it takes on notes of tobacco, rose, liquorish, and – in the best vintages – even truffle. Its finesse and elegance are due to alkalinity and calcium content in the soil.

This Barolo in youth presents scents of violet and small red fruit, balsamic tastes, and pleasant spice notes of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

The original name of this vineyard was Brinate.

COLOUR:garnet red with orange reflections
BOUQUETi: ntense with notes of violet, balsamic and small red berries
TASTE:intense, elegant and persistent, with nuances of red fruit, tobacco, liquorice and with ageing truffles and cinnamon

Reviews:

So beautifully perfumed with blueberries, raspberries, violets and flowers. Full-bodied, transparent and so clear with intense, chewy tannins and a seamless finish. Tight and powerful. Needs two or three years to soften.

James Suckling 95 Points

 

This wine takes us to Brunate, one of the most celebrated vineyards in the appellation and one of five prized sites farmed by the Damilano family. The 2016 Barolo Brunate definitely shows its pedigree and is perhaps the most classic wine in this group of five, thanks to its intensity and its notable depth. When Brunate delivers, it delivers, and you get dark fruit, rusty nail, blood orange and lilac, all presented in an absolutely pure and pristine manner. The Brunate cru is composed of 25% sand, 45% silt and 30% clay, so you get a bit more structure here compared to the more ethereal Cannubi right over the next hill. Damilano has crafted a terrific wine in this edition of only 2,900 bottles (released in April 2020).

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95

 
Aromas and flavors of eucalyptus, juniper, tar, black cherry and plum are the hallmarks of this beefy red, which is fresh and packs a firm grip on the finish, yet shows the promise of ripe fruit too. Needs time. Best from 2023 through 2042. 240 cases made, 50 cases imported.

Wine Spectator 94 Points

 

Pressed rose, ground clove, star anise and moist earth aromas mingle together in the glass. Elegantly structured and full of flavor, the juicy palate doles out raspberry compote, black cherry and tobacco set against refined tannins. Drink 2023–2031.

Elvio Cogno Cascina Nuova Barolo 2017

Elvio Cogno Cascina Nuova Barolo 2017

Born to satisfy the curiosity of consumers keen to have a more immediate understanding of Barolo, the wine is bright garnet red in color with orange tints.

The aftertaste is very harmonious with a mineral, aromatic finish.

Fenocchio Barolo 2017

Fenocchio Barolo is 100 percent Nebbiolo. 

Claudio and Albino Fenocchio own 10 hectares of vineyards. This Barolo comes from a blend of Bussia in Monforte d'Alba and Castellero in Barolo. The soil in Bussia is helvetian ( limestone and clayey blue marl) which contributes much to the fullness and excellent aging potential of these wines. The Castellaro vineyard is of tortonian soil (blue marl and sandstone mixed with sand) which gives a velvety mouth feel and exceptional aromatics. The vines are an average of 30 years old.

Color: Ruby red with garnet reflections
Bouquet: Rich bouquet with hints of blueberries, roses and liquorice.
Taste: Densely structured with a full, complex flavor. It is an elegant wine with firm tannins and good acidity that will become velvety and graceful with age. This wine is generous and bold. The finish is long and lingering.

Long slow natural fermentation without the addition of yeasts for 30 days. Closed stainless steel vat fermentation with frequent pumping over maintains the temperature at a constant 29°C. This extracts greater aromatics while causing the heavier tannins to break down and to precipitate out.

Acidity: 5.2
Alcohol by Volume: 14.5 %

Game, grilled and roasted red meats and ripe and mature cheeses. Dishes with truffles.

Review:

"Sweet strawberry aromas with dried flowers and orange zest. Full-bodied with a round, chewy palate and lots of fruit. Some smoke, grilled meat and spice, such as nutmeg. A little tight at the end. Needs time to open. Try after 2023."

There's a gritty, sandy quality to the tannins that would cut through roast pork stuffed with prunes.


Review:


Exciting the blend of Rocche and Torriglione which expresses so much power in this extraordinary vintage. Part in slight reduction and slowly reveals hints of black plums, tobacco leaf, tomato leaf, black tea leaves, melted caramel licorice, incense and lots of bergamot.

"The 2015 Barolo Sori' Gepin needs quite a bit of air to open, but it is so expressive as that starts to happen. Dried flowers, cedar, tobacco and autumn leaves are laced together in a mid-weight, savory Barolo loaded with character. The 2015 remains nervy and taut, but that is the house style. - Antonio Galloni"
