Cascina delle Rose Langhe Nebbiolo '18

Giovanna Rizzolio’s family has owned Cascina delle Rose since the 1940s. It was her grandparents, Betrice and Ferdinando, who bought the estate. They fell in love with the countryside scenery: the Rio Sordo Valley with its small train station and the neat vineyards on the hillside. In the background is a string of majestic castles from La Morra to Asti. On the horizon are the Alps from the Monviso to the Monte Rosa.

Although Giovanna’s family made wine as far back as 1948 (she has a few dusty bottles left in her photogenic cellars), her winemaking efforts started with the 1992 vintage. Together with her husband Italo and his sons, Davide and Riccardo, Cascina delle Rose has become one of the stars of the Tre Stelle area of Barbaresco. The crafted wines are beautiful and feminine; they shine for their light and silky tannins.

The total holdings for Cascina delle Rose are 4 hectares of vines and production has reached 24,000 bottles. She has parcels in Rio Sordo and the neighboring appellation Tre Stelle. These two crus are often cited as producing among the lightest and earliest maturing Barbaresco wines. Cascina delle Rose owns 2.5 hectares in the 15-hectare Tre Stelle cru. Organic viticulture is employed. The soil is of marine origin from the tertiary era and is characterized by bluish marls (from 1 to 3 meters deep) and by a calcareous nature. The stratification is dense and varied, rich in minerals and natural springs.

The Cascina delle Rose Langhe Nebbiolo is floral with notes of rose and violet. Seeing no oak, this vibrant wine is fresh on the palate with wonderful texture and silky tannins. It shows Nebbiolo's more elegant and youthful side. There is elegance and persistence. Enjoy this wine with grilled vegetable dishes, charcuterie, white meat like ham, and aged cheeses.
