Aromas recalling camphor, rose, baking spice, forest floor and perfumed berry shape the nose on the gorgeous 2020 Cascine delle Rose Rio Sordo. Smooth and full-bodied, it’s a fantastic expression of this famed cru and shows all the class this jewel of an estate is known for, delivering juicy Morello cherry, blood orange, star anise and crushed mint alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Showing youthful tension, it has great acidity that keeps it beautifully balanced. Give this time to fully develop. Drink 2028–2040. Abv: 14%

This is Cascina delle Rose's other single-vineyard wine from a second nearby site in the village of Barbaresco. The 2020 Barbaresco Rio Sordo is slightly more linear and streamlined compared to the Tre Stelle in this vintage. That wine felt more immediate to me, but the Rio Sordo feels more long-term thanks to elegant fruit, crushed stone and sweet licorice aromas it offers. Production is 3,500 bottles.
