Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG – 2010 – 91 points – Snooth.com
“Intense on the nose with scents of leather, slightly dried fruits, a bit of biscuit, dried peach, some subtle toasty spice and bresaola notes, and a little fungi. Aromatically this is quite complex, fairly fruity, and a little spicy. Opulent on entry, this quickly finds its center with layers of vibrant red fruits, zesty with some faint blood orange/lemon oil character adding brightness. The flavors are quite pure and rather fruity with perfumed red cherries and a little herbal extract, almost something medicinal going on on the palate. The tannins are slightly chewy but this remains well balanced and eminently drinkable with a long, dusty finish bright with rosehips, and sweet/tart cranberry and raspberry fruit. A very fine introductory classic Barolo.”
