2017 Cascina delle Rose Barbaresco DOCG 'Tre Stelle'
95 points, Wine Enthusiast. "Delicate scents of rose petal, blue flowers, woodland berry and forest floor shape the nose along with whiffs of camphor and tobacco on this fragrant red. Loaded with elegance, the focused, savory palate delivers juicy red cherry, blood orange and licorice alongside taut, polished tannins."
94 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "Tre Selle and Rio Sordo are the two adjacent vineyards farmed by Cascina delle Rose. This boutique, family-run winery is happy with results in 2017, although this vintage was characterized by three full months with no rain. Giovanna Rizzolio's family farm measures under two hectares in Tre Stelle. Their 2017 Barbaresco Tre Stelle boasts an open personality with medium concentration and build. The bouquet reveals pretty floral and fruity tones. Tre Stelle plays strong cards in terms of mouthfeel, with dark Nebbiolo fruit and spice flavors supported by a firm textural backbone. There are some dusty mineral notes on the close."
