Tasting Notes

 

Light ruby in color, aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, rose complement undertones of cherry juice, strawberries, and hints of spice box.  On the palate, similar to nose, medium intensity of pressed rose petal, cranberry, red cherry, strawberry, clove, tea and touch of citrus, crisp acidity and smooth tannins make for a food friendly wine. 

 

WINE INFORMATION

Grignolino is a red variety native to Piedmont, and it is believed to have originated from the Monferrato hills. Historically called Barbesino, it was once highly prized by Piedmontese nobility and valued with similar prices as Barolo. The name derives from “grignole”, a word in the Piedmontese dialect, which means “pips”, alluding to the greater number of pips the berry contains.

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.

Following fermentation, this wine is aged for 3 months in stainless steel to preserve its fresh, fruit-forward aromas. Less than 400 cases were produced.
