Castello di Neive Barbaresco 2013
Medium garnet in color, aromas of red fruits and cassis are complemented by delicate hints of licorice, smoke, and caramel. The tannins in this wine are central to the mouth feel, yet they are neither astringent nor tight...in other words, a perfect example of the Neive style. Pairs well with meat-based raviolis, mushroom-topped pork saltimbocca, and elegant filet mignon dishes.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas of toast, oak, menthol, resin, coffee bean and medicinal notes. The aromas carry over to the firm palate, along with thyme, clove, licorice and bracing tannins.
Wine SpectatorSmells like an antique furniture shop and tastes resinous and leafy. Astringent finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,000 cases made.
