CRU International – Italy Nebbiolo Style

$92.75

Luxurious flavours of dark plums and chocolate greet the nose.  While hints of blackberries, toasted oak and spices are found on the palate of this great Italian classic.

Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont, northwestern Italy, the most notable of which are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are distinguished by their strong tannins, high acidity and distinctive scent – often described as “tar and roses”.  A less obvious characteristic, visible only over time, is their tendency to lose color. Within just a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from deep, violet-tinged ruby to a beautiful brick orange.
