Cascina Delle Rose Barbera d'Alba 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Black fruit, a little lime-ade, soil tones and lots of leather come together on the nose in this spicy almost passion fruit, very perfumed, elegant rendition of Barbera. A Little soft on the palate due to the richness and depth of fruit here, though this doesn’t feel extracted. Just natural expression of ripeness, focused, with good snap, in a very friendly Barbera that is easy going but still interesting. The texture though is so supple and delicately full, and this has an impressively sweet, long, balsamic toned finish. Really enchanting. 90pts

15 months in botte Finely focused if a bit smoky on the nose with vivid black fruit aromas, a touch of black plum and a little spicy top note. This is so well balanced, elegant even though with nice richness and a touch of plum skin tannin adding a little texture to the mouthfeel. The feel is pure and fine driven by great acids on the backend. This is transparent and pure with fine length and balsamic aromas on the finish. There is a distinct lack of noticeable winemaking here, this really speaks of grape and place. 91pts

A bit meaty on the nose and very open, complex and intense with black currant and spicy blackberry fruit framed with subtle herbal edges. Elegant and rich on entry with a lovely expression of fruit, just fruit and vineyard captured driven by superb acidity on the long finish which shows a subtle spicy edge. The balance of these wines (while tasting the entire Cascina delle Rose line-up) is just spectacular. 91pts
