Wine Review: This red colored Barbaresco is very good. It opens with a fragrant dark cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of oak. I also detected hints of plum and mild minerality. The finish is dry and its tannins build up and last for a very long time. This Barbaresco is very food friendly and would pair nicely with Italian braciole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker 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. Pairs well with meat-based raviolis or mushroom-topped pork saltimbocca.
