Some consider Barolo, a bold Italian wine that can age for decades, "the king of wines." It's made from nebbiolo, a red grape that can be found at more approachable prices if you know what to look for.
This week on the podcast, Cork 'n' Bottle's Bob Hemauer talks with host Lindsay Christians about what makes nebbiolo fantastic, and why "roses and tar" is a pretty great thing when it comes to wine.
The wine we tasted on this episode is a 2012 Ravera di Monforte Barolo from Benevelli Piero, made by Massimo Benevelli and imported by Kermit Lynch. It costs about $55. For more accessible price points, look for "Langhe Nebbiolo."
