Elvio Cogno Barolo Cascina Nuova 2017
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
"Born to satisfy the curiosity of consumers keen to have an of Barolo, this wine proves the younger vineyards can produce excellent Barolo. Bright garnet red in color with orange tints. Pleasing and immediate, scents of flowers and light, delicate spices. The mouth is agreeably rounded, juicy and fresh, with just the right balance between pleasantness and elegance. The aftertaste is very harmonious with a mineral, aromatic finish."
Truffle, wild berry, rose and baking spice aromas come to the forefront along with a balsamic whiff of menthol. Delicious and smooth, the full-bodied palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, blood orange and licorice set against tightly knit, refined tannins. Drink 2024–2032.
This is focused and almost creamy in texture, boasting cherry, strawberry, almond, tar and earth flavors. Multifaceted and just when you think it's accessible, the dense, dusty tannins emerge. Fresh and long. Best from 2025 through 2045. 1,700 cases made, 500 cases imported.
This wine is a sure bet from Elvio Cogno and such a steal. The 2017 Barolo Cascina Nuova delivers ample intensity and power. In this regard, it keeps faithfully in line with the expectations of a hot vintage that rendered more concentrated and sweeter fruit. However, the expert winemaking team at this estate has been able to manage any excesses or hints of over-ripeness. These are solid results with 20,000 bottles available.
The 2017 Barolo Cascina Nuova is perfumed with ripe cherry, licorice, tar, and dried roses. The palate is ripe and refreshing, with a fairly classic build noted by red plum, tobacco leaf, and turned earth. This wine is beautiful and inviting out of the gates or drink 2022-2036.
The 2017 Barolo Cascina Nuova is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. Bright red-toned fruit, crushed rose petal and mint open in the glass. The tannins are a bit grainy, but I would not push my luck too far on aging.
