About this wine
Cascina delle Rose is a winery that deserves your attention. It is specialized in very classic, elegant and fine expressions of Nebbiolo executed according to local tradition. The 2015 Barbaresco Rio Sordo walks with delicate footsteps. In a vintage that shows many overripe wines from this appellation, Cascina delle Rose gets it right. You do, however, feel the 14.5% alcohol on the finish.
The 2015 Barbaresco Rio Sordo is darker and more muscular than the Tre Stelle tasted alongside it. Powerful and virile in feel, the Rio Sordo is a super-expressive, classically austere Barbaresco that is going to need at least a few years in bottle to come into its own. A host of dark, spiced, balsamic-infused notes develop in the glass, but the Rio Sordo remains reticent. Potent tannins add to an impression of gravitas. There is plenty to look forward to. -- Antonio Galloni
