"Floral aromas of rose and iris mingle with red berry and tilled earth on this perfumed red. Elegantly structured, the vibrant palate offers juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry and star anise before a savory, almost salty finish. Taut, refined tannins and bright acidity keep it balanced. Drink through 2030. -KO"

"The 2018 Barolo Cascina Nuova is fine-tuned with plenty of wild berry, cassis, grilled herb and crushed stone. The aromas are quite classic for Nebbiolo, but what stands out here is the directness and freshness with which they are delivered. The tannins are tucked carefully inside the smooth, silky character of this elegant wine. 20,000 bottles were produced."

"Starts out savory, offering juniper, eucalyptus and mint notes swirling around a core of cherry and plum fruit. Sleek, vibrant and firm, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and herbs. Best from 2025 through 2040. 1,670 cases made, 500 cases imported. -BS"
"Born to satisfy the curiosity of consumers keen to have a more immediate understanding of Barolo, the wine is bright garnet red in color with orange tints. Pleasing and immediate, it offers scents of flowers and light, delicate spices. The mouth is agreeably rounded, juicy and fresh, with just the right balance between pleasantness and elegance. The aftertaste is very harmonious with a mineral, aromatic finish.
Barolo Cascina Nuova proves that even the youngest vineyards can produce an excellent Barolo, albeit easily accessible, more immediate and of wide appeal. Created for a public that wants to get to know the wine gradually before moving onto more complex examples, it might even be defined as a benchmark among Barolo wines. A point of departure for a delightful and gratifying wine drinking experience, it also ensures excellent value for money. True to the history of great wine and Langhe tradition, Valter and Nadia see this Barolo as an assemblage of grapes from the youngest vineyards, carefully drawing out the best each one has to offer. This is a wine that manages to reflect all the character of a major terroir." - Winery
