Romantics look hopefully on Valentine’s Day as a day to celebrate their love. Some plan special evenings with their special someone, with dinner out or maybe dinner in. Others look for that special gift, maybe roses, candy, or jewelry. Wine lovers, who are also romantics, start thinking about what wine would be special enough to share with their loved one. A special wine should be one you both will enjoy, a wine that you rarely share, maybe even a bit more pricey than your usual choice. For our special romantic evening, we are toasting the day with Nebbiolo.
The Nebbiolo grape is a preeminent grape used in both Barolo and Barbaresco wines in certain regions of Italy. Nebbiolo wines have moved to other parts of the wine world. We discovered a Nebbiolo wine at Barboursville Vineyards in Virginia several years ago. This wine is one of their premium wines and has a large following for its aromas and flavors. Many descriptive words are used to describe this wine not all appealing, like roses and tar, or violets, herbs, tobacco, and prunes, but the wine is very appealing. It is one of our favorites and just the right wine to celebrate love and romance.
Whatever your choice for the day, hope you and your love have a happy and romantic day!
