One of the greatest vineyards in the Langhe, Santo Stefano is a monopole owned completely by Castello di Neive and has long been regarded as an amazing area to grow Nebbiolo. Before focusing on their own cuvées, Castello di Neive even use to sell Santo Stefano grapes to the legendary Bruno Giacosa, who would make a single-vineyard expression from them.

It should therefore be no surprise that the 2018 vintage of their Barbaresco Santo Stefano Albesani won the critics over, having been awarded a Platinum medal and 97 points at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2021.

The highest rated Barbaresco and the joint-highest wine from the whole of Piedmont at the show, the Albesani 2018 places as the 50th best wine in the world, a fantastic achievement for a Barbaresco of this value. Those who already follow this producer know that this is no one time fluke, their 2017 vintage placed #23 in Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wines of 2020, with 96 points.

Since the early 1960s, there have been only two wineries with access to Santo Stefano, which is arguably Barbaresco's finest vineyard. One is Bruno Giacosa and the other is Castello di Neive. Recently Castello di Neive have put on new staff to work in the vineyards and cellars and the results are striking. Considering the pedigree of the vineyard, this is a smart buy if you love the rarefied reds of Piedmont.
