The red grape Nebbiolo comes from the Italian region of Piedmont and delivers tannic, expressive wines that need to mature long. The name is derived from "nebbia" which means fog and points to the white coating on the berries, which forms when fully ripe. This vine was probably grown since ancient times in the hills of Monferrato and the Langhe, and is already mentioned in writings of the 13th century. The Nebbiolo is one of the most demanding grape varieties, concerning the floor and location. It grows almost exclusively on calcareous marl and absolutely requires steep south and southwest positions.
