Castello di Neive, Piedmont

Rich and gulpable, this 100% Pinot Nero is vinified in the traditional Champagne method and aged for three years in the oldest cellars of the castle. This maturation process, after fermentation in oak and the natural Blancs de Noir style lead to a ripe and powerful brew, with a well-integrated mousse and soft, lush acidity (reminiscent of the 1995 Champagne vintage). The wine retains a freshness and elegance but can certainly be enjoyed with food, above and beyond mere canap├ęs.

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.
