All of the experts agree that Nebbiolo is a tough grape to grow, even on its home ground of Piedmont and a little slice of Lombardy (there are some well-regarded non-Italian Nebbiolos, but so far the only one I’ve enjoyed was made by John Paul at Cameron in Oregon – it actually tasted like Nebbiolo. I don’t think it’s for sale). We can all agree that Nebbiolo reaches its apogee in Barolo and Barbaresco, but there are a number of other great Nebbiolo-based wines from Carema, Alto Piemonte (Gattinara, Ghemme, etc), and the Valtellina which are also capable of long-aging. They don’t have the depth of the very best Barolo, but they can provide great drinking pleasure, and with very few exceptions their prices are much lower… Jamie Wolff
