2017 Cascina Delle Rose Barbaresco Tre Stelle
The Cascina Delle Rose Barbaresco Tre Stelle comes from a small vineyard whose soil is of marine origin from the Tertiary era, characterized by bluish marl (from 1 to 3 meters deep), calcareous and compact. The stratification is dense and varied, rich in minerals and natural resources.
The Barbaresco Tre Stelle was born through a rigorous selection in a vineyard of Nebbiolo grapes. Its immediate hallmarks are the complexity and depth that accompanies elegance and finesse. In the glass, the wine is garnet red with light orange reflexes. The taste is intense and persistent and the intriguing scent has a slight hint of wild fruit, spicy with sensations of leather and pepper. The wine is fat and robust with dark cherries and red currants. It is also very pronounced in terms of tannins and structure. Only 6000 bottles were made.
It pairs perfectly with red meat, roasts, mature cheeses.
BAROLO VS BARBERESCO
Piemont - synonymous with truffles, risotto and, of course, delicious wines! - is considered one of the best wine regions of Italy. The local conditions of terrain, soil and weather make some fantastic wines. As far as the red wines are concerned, the Barolo's and Barbaresco's are world-famous, powerful aging wines. Although the Barolo and Barbaresco are made from the same grape, Nebbiolo, and produced in adjacent areas less than 16km apart, the Barbaresco and Barolo wines have some distinctive differences.
The Barbaresco area is located south of the River Tanaro and the area, due to its location, has a slightly higher average temperature which allows the Nebbiolo grape to ripen just a little earlier here than in the Barolo area. Young tannins in a young Barbaresco are often not as hard as Barolo and under DOCG rules it is allowed to release Barbaresco for sale a year earlier than Barolo. The most pronounced difference between the two wines is that Barbaresco's tannins tend to soften faster with the wine being more accessible than Barolo at a younger age. The Barbaresco area is smaller than the Barolo area with an annual production of about 35% of the Barolo production with the result that Barbaresco is not widely available on the market.
