Nebbiolo is certainly one of the most exciting red grape varieties at all, even though it is hardly found outside of Piedmont and Valtellina. However, just in Piedmont, there are far more appellations of origin for red wines based on Nebbiolo than only the famous Barolo and Barbaresco. It is difficult for many of them to step out of their shadows because their growing zones are often tiny and the quantities produced are rather small.
Yet, the qualities of these wines, which are mostly still produced very traditionally, are often impressive and the prices are comparatively moderate. This is also true for the cross-territorial appellations, which are also home to the "smaller" wines of the Barolo and Barbaresco producers, which are often worth more than just a second look.
