Castello di Neive Barbaresco Santo Stefano Albesani Riserva Double 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes that are destined for this ultra-premium wine come from the highly-respected Santo Stefano vineyard which is known to make some of Piemonte’s finest Nebbiolo wines. As with the other Castello di Neive Barbarescos, this wine is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, but the grapes used to make this wine represent the finest selection of grapes, picked at optimum ripeness. These grapes are pressed the resulting wine is allowed to age in wooden barrels for 4 years to soften the wine’s tannins and add a layer of spicy complexity to the wine’s opulent floral aromas.Tasting NotesMedium garnet in color with reddish-brown reflections, intense aromas of black cherries, dried roses, licorice, and potpourri pour out of the glass. The aging regime on this wine has made the tannins velvety without taking away from the wine’s age worthiness.Food PairingPairs well with elegant dishes such as perfectly-grilled steaks with red wine sauces, slow-braised beef with pearl onions, and roasted lamb shanks.*This bottling is in the Double Magnum format which is equivalent to 4 bottles.*__
