Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG
The Novello township has gained renown largely thanks to the Elvio Cogno estate which counts 11.5 of its 15 hectares in the cru of Ravera. Cascina Nuova is the most accessible of the property’s four Baroli, assembling fruit from a 1.5ha site of young plantings. The nose radiates prettiness: strawberry and raspberry underpin dewy rose, lilac and anise. Plump, succulent fruit remains buoyant and is gracefully buttressed by fine yet persistent structure. Zesty orange flavours refresh the finish.
A layered and transparent red with dark-plum, peach and cherry aromas and flavors. It’s full and wonderfully integrated with excellent tannins that melt into the wine. Needs at least four or five years to open. A beautiful Barolo for the cellar. Drink after 2023.
Wine & Spirits
Fruit from Valter and Nadia Fissore's younger vines in the Ravera cru yielded a dynamic wine in 2016. It opens with scents of fresh roses and brims with flavors of juicy black cherry and plum, all of it laced with fennel pollen and orange zest. The snappy fruit tones have a pristine ripeness, propelled by brisk acidity toward a vibrant, balanced finish.
An elegant style, displaying cherry, licorice, menthol and tar aromas and flavors, this is harmonious and very approachable now, yet there is sufficient structure for this red to age well too. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2037. 2,160 cases made.
