2018 Castello di Neive Barbaresco DOCG, Piedmont, Italy (750ml)
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.
This wine pairs well with meat-based raviolis, mushroom-topped pork saltimbocca, and elegant filet mignon dishes.
Fragrant and loaded with finesse, this radiant red has enticing aromas of red berry, violet, camphor and spice. Elegantly structured, the vibrant, full-bodied palate features crushed raspberry, strawberry compote, star anise and cinnamon alongside taut, polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it well-balanced and energized. Drink now-2033.
