Castello di Neive Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano Riserva 2016

$75

This red reveals complex aromas of fading cherry, plum, leather, autumn wood and spice, yet it's still closed on the palate. Delivering dense, muscular tannins that ply the finish, this remains fresh -- and crisp even -- but still needs time. Best from 2024 through 2045. 600 cases made, 100 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo originated in Piedmont in Italy, where it remains the region's most important red grape. Its name comes from the Italian word nebbia, which means fog, a feature of the hills where the grape traditionally grows. Nebbiolo is thick-skinned, early-budding and late-ripening; it needs long periods of sunshine to ripen fully and is often planted on south- or southwest-facing hillsides for maximum exposure. The best examples come from calcareous marl vineyards, with some planted in sandy soils.
