This wine gets better and is better value with every vintage it seems. The 2011 has a perfumed lifted nose of cherry...

Excellent wine, and very pleased that this is a regular list item at a reasonable price. The taste is rustic with lovely wood notes and a dry finish. This definitely needs a bit of time to open up, but if allowed, this wine will reward with flavours of currants, dried flowers and savory spices.

The 2011 Castello Di Neive Barbaresco, one of the most affordable Italian Nebbiolos out there, has elegant aromas of red currant, dates, wood, clove and fennel on the nose and red currant, cranberry and toasted wood on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with forward acidity, drying tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium to long finish. This is a food friendly and sipping wine; best 2015/16 – 2020 (evolution potential +1) (cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 88(+1) pts – recommended for its value. Tasted in Sep/14.

First time to try a Barbaresco and I was utterly impressed. It matched so well with food and also great to sip on its own. Medium body. Decant well before drinking. I opened the bottle 90 minutes before drinking. Tasted February & October 2015.
