Wine originally from the region of Piemont in Italy is produced from Nebbiolo grapes. Nebbiolo is used for the production of such famous wines as Barolo, Barbaresco and Gattinara, which represent single areas where the grape is grown.
The name Nebbiolo has probably been derived from the Italian word nebbia, which means fog. The occurrence of fog is quite common during the harvest in the hills of Langhe. Langhe is renowned for its Nebbiolo production.
Nebbiolo produces full-bodied red wines with a high content of tannins. Nebbiolo reaches its maximum potential after several years of aging.
