A gorgeous and inexpensive Barolo. On this wonderful vineyard near the winery, the experts at Cogno attain perfect fruit ripeness and aromatic definition, also enabling extraction of those beautiful polished tannins through the palate. Though a proper food Barolo, being from younger vines it's also a great introduction to this marvelous style. Cellar or decant this total charmer.

"The 2015 Barolo Cascina Nuova is a very pretty entry-level offering from Elvio Cogno. Bright red berry and lifted floral notes pair nicely with the wine's gracious, mid-weight feel. Silky tannins match the wine's finely sculpted, saline-infused personality. The Cascina Nuova is a terrific example of the bright, taut Barolos made here in 2015. I would prefer to drink this gracious, lithe Barolo over the next decade or so. Drink 2019 – 2030."
17/20 Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com (2015 Vintage)
"Novello. From young vines of the Ravera Cru. 30–35 days of total skin maceration. 20,000 bottles produced. Beautiful, lustrous ruby. Fantastic, exotically savoury spice nose with notes of pure cherry and cranberry fruit. With aeration increasingly lifted and perfumed. There is concentration of fruit on the palate as well as fine integrated acidity that peaks at the finish together with fine crunchy tannins. Elegant. Drink 2019 – 2026."
