    "Santo Stefano" Barbaresco DOCG 2020
  • Let us make a premise. Whoever drinks a Barbaresco, or a Barolo, is unlikely to be satisfied with just any wine. There are too many particularities that each territory brings to the finished wine. This is why MGAs, or Additional Geographical Mentions, have been identified, which make it possible to understand whether a certain wine is produced with grapes from one area rather than another. In this case, for example, Castello di Neive offers a Barbaresco DOCG produced with pure Nebbiolo grapes from Vigna Santo Stefano, a fabulous corner of the Langa. Here the wines produced are clearly recognisable by their balsamic freshness. A very low yield, close to 72 quintals of grapes per hectare, and an annual production of just over 15 thousand bottles, make this wine unique and precious. After processing, the wine rests in wooden barrels for at least two years before bottling. This is the time needed for it to mature perfectly, ready to meet the glass of wine-lovers from all over the world. Brilliant garnet red in colour, the nose expresses delicate notes of well-ripened small fruits, dried flowers, wood and spices. In the mouth, however, it is particularly intense and elegant, with a fine tannic texture. Excellent already today, it is a red wine that certainly does not fear spending a few years in the cellar waiting to reach full maturity. On the table it goes wonderfully with tasty first courses, such as a dish of agnolotti with meat sauce, a roast or a beef stew.

    The Azienda agricola Castello di Neive was founded in the early 1960s by engineer Italo Stupino. It is a beautiful reality deeply tied to its territory and boasts a property of about 60 hectares, 27 of which are vineyards. A traditional winery, with great attention paid to the care of all transformation processes. The fermentation of the wines, in particular, takes place in modern cellars equipped with all the technology needed to monitor every step to the best of their ability. At the end of the transformation, then, the wines rest in barrels and barriques for the delicate phase of maturation. These are housed within the walls of the castle cellars. A historic place, where the oenologist Louis Oudart began the production of a dry wine, 'Neive', based on Nebbiolo, with which he won a gold medal at the London Exhibition of 1862.
