Cascina Delle Rose BARBARESCO TRE STELLE 2017
Cascina Delle Rose
It all began right after the WWII – with Giovanna’s grandparents, Beatrice and Ferdinando Rizzolio. The two fell in love with this house – struck by it’s panoramic hills against the backdrop of the Alps.
We hold dear memories shared on our property – playing freely in the fields; the comfort found in a glass of freshly drawn milk – the cream coating our tounges; our jovial temperments throughout the fests celebrating the threshing of wheat; evening tales shared while stripping fresh corn; the hard earned ache in our knees from collecting the fallen hazelnuts, the alluring perfume eminating from large vats of grapes moving through fermentation.
In 1974 the need for real things pushed Giovanna to move permanently to this house, one of her most intense memories. From here a dream was born: to give continuity to her grandparents’ farm. And also the path towards serenity and tranquility.
Thus began our never ending story: the house, the vineyards, the cellar and the family.
With the arrival of Italo and their two sons Davide and Riccardo, we have begun to trace a new path that represents our present and our future.
Barbaresco Tre Stelle
The Barbaresco Tre Stelle is the result of the best exposure of this geographical mention. 100% Nebbiolo grapes. Great character, undoubted finesse and femininity together for a long-lived wine of surprising pleasantness even when young thanks to the dense, snappy and silky tannic texture.
The soils are of marine origin from the Tertiary era, characterized by outcropping bluish marls, lean, calcareous, compact lands. The stratification is dense and complex, rich in mineral salts and natural springs.
Garnet red in color, elegant notes of rose and violet, red berries, a vein of fresh minerality, snappy and silky tannins. Long, persistent finish. Nebbiolo in all its beauty.
It goes well with game and blue cheeses, but when young it can be a perfect companion on any table.
