Winebow Top Italian Wine Producers in New York
at The KIMBERLY HOTEL .. Mid-Town NEW YORK
“The KING of BARBARESCO”
with Author / Italian Wine-Guy DANIEL BELLINO ZWICKE
Italo Stupino is a Top Producer of one of Italy’s most Prestigious Indigenous
Wines, BARBARESCO .. To me he is The KING of BARBARESCO, and I’d
take a Barbaresco made by Italo over one made by Angelo Gaja “Any Day
of The Week” … Italo owns a beautiful Barbaresco producing property
CASTELLO di NEIVE in Neive Peidmonte, Italy …
Italo makes World Class Barbaresco including his base Barbaresco
Castello Neive, Barbaresco Santa Stephano which is a famous
site specific “Single Vineyard” of which Italo is the stole owner ..
A small portion (20%) of this famous vineyard is planted to Barbera, for
his Babera d’Alba Santa Stephano, while the remainder of the vineyard
is planted to Nebbiolo for his famous Barbaresco Santa Stepahano ..
Italo’s Base Barbaresco has quite a great pedigree as well with grapes
coming form the famed Gallina Vineyard and other site specific vineyards.
I sold Italo’s fabulous Barbaresco and Barbera at DeGrezia Restaurant
(New York) for quite some time, and I’m a big advocawhen I was the WIne Direstor at Barbetta Ristorante in New York.
I took a great liking to Italo the minute I met him at a Winebow Portfolio Tatsing years ago. Italo’s Barbaresco ‘s are withou question, “the of the best,” if not the # 1 best producer of Barbaresco wines. At Barbetta, I sold Italo’s
wines all the time, and tell my clients about him, his wonderful wines, and his vineyards.
Recently I got to meet up and chat with my pal Italo at a recent Winebow Tasting in New York. We chatted for a good 20 minutes and learned a few
more things about Italo and his renowned Barbaresco’s and vineyard. Like the fact that his has been producing Blanc Noir Spumante made of 100% Pinot Noir, and that it will be available in New York and the U.S. very soon.
Italo was showing me a beautiful old Map of his Santa Stephano Vineyard that was
drawn-up in 1700 .. He also showed me a current picture of this storied vineyard and he showed me a spot on it where he is growing Hazelnuts along with Barbera and the renowned Nebbiolo for his Barbaresco Santa Stefano ..
