Born to satisfy the curiosity of consumers keen to have a more immediate understanding of Barolo, the wine is bright garnet red in colour with orange tints. Pleasing and immediate, it offers scents of flowers and light, delicate spices. The bouquet is agreeably rounded, with just the right balance between pleasantness and elegance. The aftertaste is very harmonious with a long minerally aromatic finish. Serve with hearty meat dishes such as braised and roast beef, game, mature cheeses, or even-why not? - from first course to last. Serving temperature: 19°C

Wine SpectatorExtremely fresh and pure, this red exhibits rose, strawberry and cherry flavors, with accents of licorice and leather. Balanced and elegant, revealing a long, resonant aftertaste of sticks and stones. Beautiful harmony. Best from 2018 through 2032. 1,250 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastForest floor, truffle, wild berry and a whiff of grilled herb unfold on this full-bodied red. The savory, structured palate displays ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice, clove and a hint of chewing tobacco alongside a firm, tannic backbone. Drink 2019-2031.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barolo Cascina Nuova is a balanced and pretty expression that does a great job of presenting aromas of cherry, tar, licorice and grilled herb with equal billing. The wine is made with the estate's younger Nebbiolo vines for a more immediate and approachable style. There is a touch of green herb or olive on the finish that distinguishes it from its peers.
