Lange Nebbia: Fog Rolling In Over The Vines At Night

Long exposure shot from Rodello looking toward Alba and Diano d’Alba at night.  The fog comes in thick, voluminous, and creeps like a silent ghost toward the valley below the Langhe hills.  Piemonte is great during the day, but at night it has a quiet, romantic magic going on.

You can see why the region is known for “nebbiolo”, from the word for fog.

Accerto!

One of our favorites (if not *the* favorite) from the recent Piemonte exploration has finally made its way to Sovereignty Wines‘ shelves thanks to our persistent pestering of their distributor.  Well worth the wait!

This beauty pairs nicely with anything savory, spicy meats, cheeses, and hearty soups.  Pester your local wine shop for it too, as it’ll be time well spent.  A perfect exploration of Piemonte in a glass, and an approachable one–only $14 or so, and way less fussy than its aging-required pricey Barolo cousin.  Barolo is the wine the Piemontese sell to make a living, but nebbiolo and dolcetto are what they drink themselves.  You’ll see why!
