Dark fruit, spice, herbs and distinct mineral notes of crushed rock and salt-air lay over a palate of rich, fruit-forward joy.
The soils of Neive on the whole are more sandy (with less limestone and clay) than Barbaresco, the exceptions being the northerly Crus of Santo Stefano and Gallina. These are richer in clay making them the best of Nieve, which, generally speaking, are the most powerful and structured than the Crus within Barbaresco.
