95pointsCastello di Neive 2016 Albesani Santo Stefano (Barbaresco)

Cellar Selection

This firmly structured, focused red offers aromas of red berry, fragrant blue flowers, menthol, oak and spices. The assertive palate evokes cranberry, sour cherry, star anise, underbrush and orange zest set against tightly knit, close-grained tannins that leave a rather drying finish, while racy acidity lends balance. It's still tight and youthfully austere, so give it ample time to fully open up and develop. Drink 2026–2041. Kerin O’Keefe
