Some of us have better genes than others. Think J-Lo. Both have aged better than most and just like humans, grapes can have better anti-aging genes too. We digress. This lesson is on Nebbiolo, a grape that simply put has better genes than others. It is a grape which many consider being the greatest grape in Italy. Declaring a grape as “great” doesn’t just mean that it tastes better. At a minimum, we think grape greatness is achieved by the potential for it to age, and also having a flavor which is unique to where it is grown. Nebbiolo has both of those attributes and so yes, it is great and J-Lo is too.
