2012 Nebbiolo

The Nebbiolo grape, often called the blood grape, comes from the Piedmont region of Italy and a sub-region called Nebbiolo.  This is an old grape that dates back to the 7th century and the writings of a monk.  From that time to the early part of the 1700s, it was reserved for the exclusive use of the Italian nobility earning the title "The King of Wine" and "The Wine of Kings."

Persistent but refined tannins and a firm acidic backbone add depth to the full structures and silky-smooth texture on the palate.

Tasting Notes:

Color:  Garnet

Aromas:  Cherry pit, plum, black licorice, leather and hints of baking spices

Taste:  Flavors of red cherries, violet and chocolate shine in this complex but elegant take on the classic Italian variety

Food Pairing:  Pairs well with vegetarian fare such as beans, stuffed mushrooms and root crops. Also good with German sausages and various Worst, game, wild boar, pork, beef, and beaufort cheese.
