Terre Alfieri DOCG Nebbiolo: Vines

The Terre Alfieri DOCG Nebbiolo is a single varietal wine, and therefore can be made exclusively by Nebbiolo grapes

Nebbiolo 85% to 100%; 15% other non-aromatic black grape varieties suitable for cultivation in the Piedmont Region

Piedmont’s noblest red grape needs to grow in a carefully chosen environment and growing conditions. It sprouts early and the fruit generally ripens in mid October. The bunch is medium to large, a winged pyramid shape with medium to small grapes having a consistent blue-black skin with violet nuances. This is the vine that produces Barolo and Barbaresco, Nebbiolo d’Alba... you can read more about Nebbiolo here.
