Wine EnthusiastFresh and subdued , this offers a delicate bouquet that is colored by all kinds of minute aromatic details, like cured meat, tobacco, crème de cassis and black licorice. There's also a very pretty blast of natural freshness on the close.

Wine AdvocateCastello di Neive's 2009 Barbaresco is a pretty wine that strikes a nice balance of forward fruit and structure. Dark red cherries, tobacco, licorice and crushed flowers are some of the notes that emerge from the glass, but ultimately the 2009 is really about textural elegance and finesse, both of which make it delicious to drink even today. The 2009 isn't a blockbuster, but it does have plenty of harmony in its class, along with an open, inviting personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
