Nebbiolo is named after Nebbia, the fog that covers the hills of Piemonte, Italy, where Nebbiolo is the crowning glory. A very hard grape to grow, it is light skinned, making it prone to natures attack and often succumbs to hail,
frost and other problems. When it comes true however, it produces some of the finest, premium wines on the planet. It is forceful but elegant. Attempts at growing it elsewhere have been made, but no one has been able to replicate the quality that comes out of Piemonte.
