Nebbiolo is one of the most illustrious Italian red grapes. Although Nebbiolo can produce attractive everyday wines, it is better known for the masterpieces created with it — wines coveted by wine lovers and collectors alike and worthy of any cellar. Nebbiolo is native to Piedmont, in Northern Italy, and it shares the spotlight with a few other red grapes, Barbera and Dolcetto. Still, for structured and age-worthy red wines, Nebbiolo is everyone’s grape of choice. Let’s talk about Nebbiolo and the wines made from it. Nebbiolo might just be one of the most exciting grapes on the planet.

What Are the Most Popular Nebbiolo Wines?

Although grape growers tend Nebbiolo vines worldwide, the vast majority are in Piedmont, specifically around the town of Asti and Alba along the Tanaro River. The most popular Nebbiolo wines are, without a doubt, Barolo and Barbaresco, two DOCG-level wines made exclusively with the grape — authentic collector’s items. Other popular wines made with Nebbiolo include those labelled as Langhe or Roero. The grape also goes by different names in neighbouring regions, where it’s known as Spanna, Picoutener and Chiavennasca.

Are Nebbiolo Wines Expensive?
