Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG
Truffle, wild berry, rose and baking spice aromas come to the forefront along with a balsamic whiff of menthol. Delicious and smooth, the full-bodied palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, blood orange and licorice set against tightly knit, refined tannins.
The Wine Advocate
This wine is a sure bet from Elvio Cogno and such a steal. The 2017 Barolo Cascina Nuova delivers ample intensity and power. In this regard, it keeps faithfully in line with the expectations of a hot vintage that rendered more concentrated and sweeter fruit. However, the expert winemaking team at this estate has been able to manage any excesses or hints of over-ripeness.
This is perfumed with ripe cherry, licorice, tar, and dried roses. The palate is ripe and refreshing, with a fairly classic build noted by red plum, tobacco leaf, and turned earth. This wine is beautiful and inviting out of the gates.
