Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo: Main Image

Style

Nebbiolo's high tannin and acidity levels make it a perfect candidate for aging, especially since patient consumers are often rewarded with an amazing array of complex flavors, many of which are hidden when young.

Traditional

This style typically makes no attempt to tame the high levels of acidity and tannin through winemaking; instead the expectation is that these wines will age for a decade or more. With lean fruit flavors and gamy earthy notes dominating, this style requires at least several years aging before showing its flavor characteristics.

Modern

Since many people do not have several years to wait for their wine to age, some producers are intervening more in the winemaking process and producing wines with lower tannin and acidity levels, richer fruit flavors, and a softer texture so that they may be enjoyed sooner. These wines are typically aged in smaller oak barrels that often impart a toasty oaky spiciness.
