||A bit unsteady. If the spring is favorable (not cold and not rainy), productivity is good enough, if the vintage unfolds unfavorable production is poor, because the "Nebbiolo Lampia" is subject to the spinning of flowering bunches and the flowering of flowers.
|Areas of cultivation
||It is spread in well-defined areas, Piedmont, Lombardy and Valle d'Aosta.
||The first news of this vine dates back to 1300. The name nebbiolo according to some came from "mist", as its grapes seem almost not clouded by the abundant wolves; According to others, the name would be related to the late maturation of grapes, which often obliges them to harvest at the time of autumn mists. A last, older, version would derive the name nebbiolo from "noble", as this vine makes wine "generous, shaggy and sweet".

|Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety
||From the nebbiolo you get very long wines, ruby red color, soon tending to the garnet with orange nuances. The scent is very intense and elegant, with hints of plum and purple, spiced with scents of undergrowth and mushrooms, ethereal, enriched with goudron notes after aging. With this grape you will find important wines and austere, which taste taste full, warm, tannic and aromatic persistence.
||Resistance to the disease: somewhat sensitive to the disease, but resistant to deworming. In the very rainy autumn years it can suffer for Botrytis attacks. Like all true "Nebbioli" is quite sensitive to temperature fluctuations, and it prefers sunny sunshine locations, so that maturation is well completed but not overly arid. This is why it is well suited for high and even mountainous locations, as long as sunny and sheltered by cold winds.
