Cascina Delle Rose Barbaresco Tre Stelle 2011
Tight on the nose with very fine rose petal aromas and balsamic tinged red berry fruit, raspberry and limestone. Superbly elegant, pure and delicate in the mouth with late arriving tannins and intensity of fruit that leads to great intensity and weight on the back palate. While fairly tannic, the crisp tannins are well judged and present on the finish which is a bit tight, irony, and very aromatic with red fruit aromas with a hint of mint in the mouth. Tight and promising. 92ptsAdd winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Classic cherries in alcohol on the nose gain complexity and a little spice edge from notes of pollen, piercing floral notes and hints f exotic sandalwood and slightly vegetal spice notes. Soft and broad on entry, this offers up bright acids and fine fruit tannins supporting fine strawberry fruit in an elegant and refined style, though there is an edge of rusticity here. Still this exhibits wonderful purity of flavor and a particularly clear expression of fruit and is flat out delicious. 93pts
Tight on the nose slowly revealing soil and dried grass aromas followed by hints of spice seeds, tar, and small red berry fruits before the intense rose petal aromas finally reveal themselves. Soft with densely packed fine grained tannins in the mouth, this feels so elegant with wonderfully pure flavors of wild cherry and raspberry fruit on the palate backed up with a terrific expression of soil. This is a touch chewy today, and shows a hint of alcohol as well, but with time both issues should resolve themselves completely leaving those lucky enough to have this wine in their cellar with a remarkably clear and precise expression of Nebbiolo. 92pts
jammy strawberry, hot soil, licorice+, golia, clean and fresh, nice feel, nice raspberry/strawberry fruit tones but low amplitude, a bit rustic, not terribly interesting
AWE blind tasting -a bit hot, a bit jammy, plenty of green notes and spicy angelica root to give it some freshness but overall it’s heavy and sweet smelling - a bit matte in the mouth, correct medium bodied feel but the tannins seem forced and drying and the fruit is a bit too bitter, and medicinal without freshness or detail, a bit heavy handed, with an extracted finish 80-81
External Reviews for Cascina Delle Rose Barbaresco Tre Stelle
The 2010 Barbaresco Tre Stelle is a wine with an attitude, a really positive one in fact. Dark pressed fruit and blue flower create a gorgeous bouquet that is laced with smoky notes of tar, licorice and spice. This wine flaunts a tight and firm consistency that is supported by the fine and integrated tannins. Its personality is delicate and feminine, but the wine’s persistency and determination is full-throttle. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.
This gorgeous, single-vineyard Barbaresco has an enticing Nebbiolo perfume of forest floor, Alpine herbs, ripe berry, truffle and a hint of leather. The palate delivers cherry notes sprinkled with spice, and shows great depth and balance. It’s elegant and already shows mesmerizing complexity.
