Noble. Northern. Nebbiolo!

Taste five expressions of a much-loved grape variety as I Trulli’s Garden Parties continue tonight!

cascina corte fog blogThe name Nebbiolo derives from “nebbia“, the Italian word for fog.

Corte estate in Dogliani last fall — demonstrates why.

Nebbiolo: the word alone is enough to stir excitement and emotion in the hearts and minds of Italian wine lovers. Yet for all the much-deserved attention heaped upon Barolo and Barbaresco, it’s important to note also that this noblest of northern grape varieties stretches far beyond these two celebrated appellations.

Tonight at I Trulli we’ll be pouring five wines which are each an example of how Nebbiolo is used in other wines throughout Piedmont and Lombardy. From the white-vinified Chiavennasca to Canavese Rosato to the Nebbiolo-Pinot Nero blend Baccalitt, these five wines are as diverse as they are delicious. Join us tonight in the lush seclusion of our private back garden, where you can sample all five wines and indulge in Chef Patti Jackson‘s famous seasonal antipasti.
