Some of Italy's finest red wines are made using the Nebbiolo grape in the Piedmont region. These wines include Barolo, Barbaresco and Gattinara. These Nebbiolo wines are full-bodied and tannic when young but can soften with some aging. The robust Barolo wines generally need more aging than the more elegant Barbaresco wines.

Wherever they are from you should buy Nebbiolo wines at the Ultimate Wine Shop.
