"The 2018 Barolo Cascina Nuova is focused on elegance, refinement and pleasantness of drinking. Enveloping aromas of strawberry, raspberry and blood orange are woven together with floral and spicy scents. The mouthfeel is juicy and well balanced; it offers a smooth drink thanks to an excellent freshness and a velvet and well integrated tannic texture, a recurring element in Elvio Cogno's Barolo wines, but particularly accentuated in this 2018 vintage." —winemaker
"Vigna Ca’ Guicciardi has an intense, bright red ruby color, marked aromas of ripe red fruit with prevailing notes of black cherry, currant, spices (liquorice, cloves and cinnamon) and dried violet; the warmth and light during ripening produce round and rich tannins on the palate." —winemaker
Wine Anthology Team Review- With grapes grown at the foot of the Alps in northern Italy, the soil is filled with quartz and metamorphic rock that holds warmth from the sun and adds to the unique characteristics of the grapes. You'll find light and dark fruit flavors here complimented by a spice character that rides into the finish quite nicely. Enjoy with Past Primavera with grilled Chicken. Enjoy!
"Serralunga Barolo is characterized by great structure and power. Dry and tannic, but with velvety texture and great balance. It has notes of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. balance. The finish is very long-lasting. Ideal with hearty red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses." —winemaker
Wine Anthology Team Review- A terrific example of what could be done with Nebbiolo, this Barolo is one of the most highly touted wines of the year. Dried floral flavors walk hand in hand with citrus fruit and earthy elements combining to make this northern Italian classic. Often referred to as the "King of Italian Reds", Barolo, when made right, could be a truly amazing wine to behold. Do yourself a favor and decorate your holiday meal with this beauty of a bottle. Enjoy!
"An explosion of fresh perfumes, with raspberry and rose nuances. Red fruit flavors well integrated with aromatic, light and delicate aromas. Fine tannins and breathtaking elegance." —winemaker
Wine Anthology Team Review-A wonderfully mixed bag of flavors and aromas, everything from cherry, plum, baking spice, anise and earthy tones. A perfect example of northern Italian Nebbiolo as it's finest! Bring this with you to your next dinner party and show off how well you know "food friendly" reds!! Cheers!
"Broglio is Schiavenza's largest cru holding, with 1.5ha owned here. The vineyard is located at 360 meters above sea level with a south-east exposure. Due to a bit more clay in the topsoil, Broglio is also the most productive site in the Schiavenza range. To achieve balance and to let the Serralunga terroir speak clearly, this vineyard requires more labor than their other sites, with multiple passes of canopy work, bunch-thinning, and green harvest. Of the four Barolos, Broglio can often be the one that is most aromatically and structurally "ready" at a young age, perhaps even more so than the estate's Serralunga bottling." —winemaker
