Castello di Neive Barbaresco Santo Stefano 2009
|Brand||Castello di Neive|
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano unfurls on the palate with layers of highly expressive dark fruit. Hints of menthol, smoke, incense, leather and tobacco appear later, adding considerable depth and complexity. A plush, open finish rounds things out in style. Though fresher than the straight bottling, the Santo Stefano is also remarkably open today. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024.
Wine EnthusiastBarbaresco Santo Stefano is a linear and silky expression of Nebbiolo, with pretty aromas of dried raspberry and smoke. It shows elegance and a bright, lively finish.
Wine SpectatorSpicy, this shows black pepper and underbrush flavors, coming off stiff and astringent. Best from 2015 through 2023. 1,660 cases made.
