Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Castello Di Neive Barbaresco, one of the most affordable Italian Nebbiolos out there, has elegant aromas of red currant, dates, wood, clove and fennel on the nose and red currant, cranberry and toasted wood on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with forward acidity, drying tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium to long finish. This is a food friendly and sipping wine; best 2015/16 – 2020 (evolution potential +1) (cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 88(+1) pts – recommended for its value. Tasted in Sep/14.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
