Editorial Reviews for Cascina Adelaide Barolo
A five vineyard blend that is fermented in tini for two weeks then aged in a combination of Botte and used barrique. Woodsy on the nose with strong balsamic and sottobosco notes. Not a fruit driven nose with deep flinty minerality. Sweetish and front-loaded in the mouth then very linear and precise with fine balance between the polished tannins and cleansing acidity. The fruit is soft and subtle with emerging notes of wild cherry gentle accented by sottobosco notes and a vein of licorice that leads to a long finish with bright acids and nice notes of tea and woodsy roots. Fine base Barolo 88pts.
From young vines 10-15 years old in La Morra. This offers up elegant and restrained notes of hot iron, mint and coffee, it seems a bit closed at the moment. In the mouth this is like a black flannel cape, broad with mass but covering who knows what. Slowly the wine gains aromatics, the ionized air after a rainstorm, a touch of wood, a whiff of cigarette smoke, more menthol and spice tones. In the mouth the wine is as closed as on the nose with a rich feel and huge structure seemingly balanced by huge flesh that gives the wine a sweet profile. Slowly notes of intense red fruits, clean licorice and exotic sandalwood emerge in a very narrow focus vein of fruit that is sinewy and earthy. This is very young and powerful and will need a handful of years in the cellar before revealing it’s full potential. 91pts.
