Nebbiolo Prima 2022

Nebbiolo Prima 2022: welcome to the twenty-sixth edition

27.01.2022, News

For more than twenty years now, Nebbiolo Prima has been a “must-attend” for the world of wine, a dramatic stage with the spotlight trained for four days on the star, Nebbiolo, Piedmont’s most ancient red grape variety. Drinks+ cannot miss this event, so we are actively participating in it.

Albeisa is a Consorzio, founded to promote the great wines of the Alba area to the world. For this reason, Albeisa has been organising, for 26 years now, Nebbiolo Prima, the official international preview introduction of Barolo, Barbaresco, and Roero, with the objective of heightening and promoting the winegrowing heritage of the Langhe and Roero, lands beloved and known throughout the world.

Nebbiolo Prima 2022

Nebbiolo is a demanding vine, needing exactly the right soil type, a south-facing hillside, pruning and training. A calcareous tufa-based soil is ideal for this vine that buds early – towards the middle of April – and ripens later than most other varieties, around the middle of October. It suffers sudden changes in temperature but oscillations between day and night temperatures are an advantage during the grape ripening phase. For a correct formation of tannins in the grape skins, south or south-west facing hillsides are required, at an altitude of between 200 m and 450 m above sea level and where spring frosts rarely occur.

Marina Marcarino, President of Albeisa highlights: “Nebbiolo Prima has become an important event now truly represents the very first moment of our wine year, the first opportunity to discover the new vintages of Barolo, Barbaresco, and Roero. And I want very much, right at the start of our programme, to extend my sincere thanks for the dedication and professionalism that you will display in the tastings over the days.”

The guests have the opportunity to discover afresh our corner of earth, the Langhe and Roero, and to evaluate the 311 wines produced by the 180 wineries here.

The stars, of course, are DOCG Barolo 2018 and Riserva 2016, DOCG Barbaresco 2019 and Riserva 2017, and DOCG Roero 2019 and Riserva 2018, all wines that, once again, will be eloquent witnesses to the myriad facets of our incredible terroir, testimony not only to the fabled quality of our earth, but also to the skills of our winegrowers and to the passionate commitment that they dedicate every day to fashion inimitable wines. To ensure the most effective representation and tasting rigour, the wines will be served blind, of course, and divided by denominations and sub-zones.
