Historical notes

The "Cold Zone" bunches

Nebbiolo is one of the oldest and most prestigious Italian native wines. In the collective imagination it has Piedmont origins and reaches the highest notoriety in the Langhe. The name seems to derive either from the large quantity of Pruina that covers the grapes as "a fog", or from the season of mists which coincides with the maturation period of Nebbiolo, typically visible in the valley bottom from the tops of the Langhe hills. It was already mentioned in Roman times: in the first century. A.D. Columella in "De Rustica" defined Nebbiolo as "bunches of Black Grapes that give Wine from Cold Zones". Since 1200, "Nibiol" is mentioned  in some public documents between Rivoli, Turin, Asti and the Langhe. In the Agriculture Treaty of Pier De 'Crescenzi, written in 1304, Nebbiolo is described for the first time in depth. Until 1600, costant quotes can be found. Since 1800 this wine has been re-launched and systematically enhanced. 

Native stories

With the Piedmontese fry-up

During the Ivrea Carnival, thanks to the festive atmosphere, we order, in a historic restaurant behind Piazza di Città, a "Fritto Misto alla Piemontese" (Piedmontese fry-up). We combine a Nebbiolo delle Langhe that accompanies us to the sensory discovery of this ancient and unique Italian dish. It's pure enjoyment, a perfect match generated by the elegant complexity of the dish and Nebbiolo, and the incredible variety of aromas from which we are pervaded. 

The Territory

In the heart of the Langhe

Nebbiolo Le Filiere is produced in the heart of the Langhe, in Vallebelbo, on calcareous-marly soils with a high hill slope. The valley is included in the territory of Monferrato, Langhe and Roero, which became in June 2014 a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because it crosses and defines a crucial area where the Langhe meet and dialogue. The Nebbiolo vine variety is also present in Valle d'Aosta, in small quantities in Sardinia, in Valtellina with the name of "Nebbiolo Chiavennasca", on the Swiss side (even if in small quantities and with a different name) and it was recently discovered that it is also present in Mexico in the upper area north of Baia California.
