Castello di Neive Barbaresco Santo Stefano 2011
Vibrant garnet cherry red w/ bricking. Smoked loamy wet leaf infused soil through mashed cherry, red flower potpourri, leather, red berries, strawberry foam & tree bark - yummy.
Med body of smooth silky delicate earthy red cherry w/ red berry fruits & touch of balsamic/liquorice & strawberry shortbread biscuit w/ light black tea. Med+ earthy red cherry soft balsamic finish.
Extremely lovely barbaresco intriguing aromas of mint and eucalyptus on top of expected leather, milk chocolate and cherry. Nice length and still years to run.
