Food Pairings for Castello di Neive Mattarello Barbera d'Alba DOC
A very rich, earthy, smoky, tannic wine with lots of beautiful sour cherry. Nose was of sour cherry. Needs to be decanted or left open for some time -- tannins were too fierce when first opened but softened with time. Some smell of cranberries and dark berries when first opened. Note that it's very strong -- 14.5% alcohol.
Tasting Colour: Very intense ruby red with tendency to garnet Nose: Very intense and complex, with a ripe berry and red fruit aroma with a hint of cocoa and Piedmontese hazelnut Taste: full body, high alcohol and acidity, well structured and balanced, with great personality Suggestion Serving temperature: 18 - 19 °C Matching foods : Sliced meats salami and ham, roast meats Potential ageing: Up to 10 years and more in the case of the best vintages
