WINE OF THE DAY 2/24/16 Castello di Nieve Barbaresco $19.99

February 24, 2016

Wine Description

The grapes for this wine come from some of the most-respected vineyards in the Barbaresco DOCG (Gallina, Messoirano, Valtorta, and a part of Santo Stefano).  It is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes grown on vines that average 30 years of age.  The grapes for this wine are pressed and then allowed to mature in wooden vats for 2 years to smooth the tannins and develop the wines’ complex flavors.

 

Tasting Notes

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.
