Tasting Notes

Lovely structure  in this wine along with flavors of lemon, citrus, nectarine and almond are woven into a fresh, clean apéritif/food wine. It shows light florality and stone fruits, along with citrus and almond on the palate.

WINE INFORMATION

Arneis is arguably the most important white grape of Piedmont, often referred to as “White Barolo” because of its complexity. Great Arneis has minerality due to the sandy soil it grows in that is also rich in fossils.

Castello di Neive and the surrounding 150-acre estate are owned by the Stupino family, specifically, siblings Anna, Giulio, Italo, and Piera. The Castello di Neive winery began when Giacomo Stupino, the family patriarch, capitalized on his experience as a surveyor and his knowledge of the area to purchase favorable vineyards and land whenever possible. In the small cellars of their family home, the Stupino’s began their first wine production and, over time, their acquired vineyards grew with the family’s production and ambitions. In 1964 the family purchased the castle with its spacious cellars, along with more land and farmsteads in Santo Stefano and Marcorino. This marked a turning point when the Stupino’s were able to renovate the castle cellars and reorganize their vineyards to produce wine according to modern methods. When Giacomo died in 1970, Giulio and Italo oversaw the transition from tenant farming to direct management of the land, initiating production and export of Castello di Neive wines abroad
