2017 Elvio Cogno Barolo "Cascina Nuova", Piedmont, Italy
ABOUT THIS WINE
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 best 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.
