Castello-di-Neive-Barbaresco-Santo-Stefano-Albesani-2013

Castello di Neive, Barbaresco Santo Stefano Albesani, 2013

The Barbaresco Santo Stefano is the result of an ethereal combination of the ideal terroir with the perfectly-suited Nebbiolo grape. This wine shows all the characteristic elegance of Barbaresco with the complexity and richness for which Santo Stefano is known. The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine are grown in the Albesani sub-appellation inside Barbaresco, in the single vineyard of Santo Stefano, which is owned entirely by Castello di Neive.

“The 2013 Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano is a very beautiful and complete wine. Here, the superior quality of the vintage manifests itself in a wine with myriad layers of nuance and complexity. Weightless and yet wonderfully expressive, the 2013 has so much going on. Spice, menthol, dried herb and licorice notes all meld together. There is so much to like here.”
