Ready to savor the taste of success? It’s yours for the making with Master Vintner Italian Nebbiolo Recipe kit.
Developing a nose juxtaposed with tar and floral notes, the Nebbiolo has long been regarded as one of Italy’s oldest and most important grape varietals. Its highly tannic structure in its youth makes it a wine that can support years of aging in dark oak extremely well, perhaps more so than all other red wines. As Nebbiolo ages, the bouquet becomes more complex and appealing, creating other aromas such as dried fruit, leather, licorice, mulberries, spices and herbs.
Food Pairings: The full-bodied wine holds ample amounts of tannin, which pairs well with ribeye steak, beef tenderloin and roast turkey. The aromas of tar and roses balance out creamy, funky cheeses such as burrata, parmigiano, or goat cheese. Fatty, rich, and buttery foods will help balance the high tannins of this strong, flavorful wine.

Have brewed this before and like the kit. Have yet to open this batch. Kit went together well and I did not run into any problems. Initial tasting upon bottling was consistent with previous batches. Should be a good wine when conditioned.
Still fermenting, but looks great. I’m sure it will be just as good as the many other wines we’ve made from Midwest!
Keep up the good work.
Fermentation went fine. Beautiful color and aroma. Still bulk aging but looks to be a good one.
Having fermented 6 MV Sommelier Select Nebbiolo's, I can confidently say this is not SS. However, this modestly-priced MVWR Nebbiolo is a very tasty deep red, somewhat spicy, although it's still young (@ 60 days). My ABV of 14.31% was surprising. Like the SS, you'll want to filter this wine for polish. A good choice for a distinctive Italian wine.
One of our favorite wines. The only drawback is we prefer to age it for several months and the wait to sample is very trying!
