Italian Indigenous Varieties: Neretto di Bairo

This week’s Italian indigenous variety hails from the region of Piedmont, near the city of Torino. It is called Neretto di Bairo and it’s a local red variety that is used in the blends allowed Valsusa DOC and Pinerolese DOC. It brings full body and color to a blend but little alcohol. The great website I found on Torinodoc has a lot of information about this grape. Salute!
