Castello di Neive, Piedmont

A dense, brambly nose which threatens violence, brooding but with a feminine side (like a cut-purse with a lavendar handkerchief up his sleeve), showing some lint and lead. Very fine tannins follow, with truffles, violets and strawberries. Long and palate-coatingly memorable.

The Castello di Neive estate

Situated in one of Italy's most picturesque hilltop villages, the castle has played an important part in the development of the region's most famous varietal - Nebbiolo, since 1857 when, in its cellars, famed French oenologist, Louis Oudart began to transform the sweet, unstructured wines of the time into the distinctive, dry style often viewed today as the Burgundy of Italy.  Castello di Neive's Barbarescos are unbendingly traditional, rich but refined, austere and aristocratic. They also produce a delicious vintage Metodo Classico and Arneis Passito to top and tail dinner.
