A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. This wine came from Enoteca Vino Nostro, the VanNess retail outlet for the ToscoImports wines. Here in the AltoPiemonte, near Gattinara, it is often done to blend a bit of Croatina/Vespolina into the Nebb. Because of the color and texture of this wine, I don't think it was pure Nebbiolo.
