Robert Parker
"Until recently the vineyards of Cascina Bruciata (“house on fire”) produced fruit that was purchased by Gaja and the Giacosa brothers of Neive among others. Marino Balbo (father) would have continued on this path were it not for the wish of his son Carlo who wanted to bottle a family wine instead. In 2000, Carlo established the brand Cascina Bruciata."

Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Fragrant floral aromas, ripe and fleshy, with a delicious medley of juicy plum, black cherry and raspberry scent. Toffee and berries on the palate with a lingering, rich finish."

90/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2013 Vintage)
"Cascina Bruciata is named after a house that burned to the ground at the end of the 1800s. The 2013 Barbaresco was made by the estate's previous owner, Carlo Balbo, before it was purchased by Marchesi di Barolo. This pretty wine makes a big leap forward in terms of ripeness and overall fruity intensity. The winemaking team at Marchesi di Barolo tells me they are moving away from this overtly ripe style in future vintages. The new owners will also be changing out much of the older oak barrels. This expression offers soft texture with succulent tannins and plump fruit flavours."

91/100 James Suckling (2013 Vintage)
"Interesting aromas of plums and light coffee follow through to a medium body, firm tannins and a savoury finish. Soft and polished. Drink or hold."
