Castello di Neive, Piedmont

A ripe, forward vintage for Neive, but still taut on the nose, with a vegetal sweetness and heady perfume of Eucalyptus and wood polish. The tannins are grippy, wrapping the fruit up tight. An austere beauty that shot into the public eye for being the red wine chosen for Tom Cruise and Katie Holme’s Italian wedding.


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.
