Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) "The 2007 Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano shows the weight and richness that is typical of this south-facing site in Neive. A rich fabric of dark fruit, fresh roses, new leather and menthol completely cover the palate. The Santo Stefano is impeccable in its generous, enveloping fruit. The intensity and sheer depth of the fruit manages to virtually bury the tannins, but they are there. As delicious as this is today, it will be even better in a few years- time. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027...Castello di Neive, one of the historic producers in Barbaresco, seems to fly under the radar, read more...but the best of the wines are well worth discovering and offer terrific quality for the money...95."
