  • Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG — 2020 – Wine Enthusiast – 93 Points

    "This wine offers a symphony of spiced, mixed fruits that play across the sensory spectrum, from the bright, high-toned notes to the deeper bass tones. Crushed flowers and savory herbs add subtle accents that keep you drawn to the glass. The palate's elegance is perceived immediately as fine tannins and vibrant acidity deftly move the red-hued fruits across the palate to join with the more savory and umami tinged notes of the finish."

  • Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG — 2020 – James Suckling – 96 Points

    "Extremely perfumed with strawberry and forest floor with some sandalwood, roses and candied watermelon. It’s medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins that are bold and solid. Very persistent finish. Chewy at the end. Classic Barolo character."

  • Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG — 2020 – Wine Advocate – 94 Points

    “The Elvio Cogno 2020 Barolo Cascina Nuova has a hint of smoke and barrel with lots of red fruits, currants and cherries. There is an earthy element that ties in nicely with the oak, and there is a tart or crunchy side to the fruit that concludes with grippy tannins.”

  • Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG — 2020 – Wine Spectator – 95 Points

    "This is supple and complex, delivering cherry, strawberry, summer meadow, earth, leather and iron aromas and flavors. Firmly structured, this picks up a hint of licorice as it winds down on the lingering finish, with tannins that are solid yet civilized. Shows fine potential."
