2018 Cascina delle Rose Dolcetto d'Alba 'A Elizabeth'
Simply Stunning! One of our favorite producers in ALL of Piedmont! Established in 1948, Cascina delle Rose sits in the Rio Sordo valley of Barbaresco. This tiny estate has only 7.5 acres planted to Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo. It is an incredibly immaculate and meticulously-run estate. The family practices organic farming — the utmost respect given to the earth — with all the vine care done manually. 100% Dolcetto that has been fermented and aged in stainless steel.
"The 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba A Elizabeth is a very classic Dolcetto done in the lithe, mid-weight style that is typical of the year, but it has lovely depth as well. Dark cherry, cloves, mocha and licorice add lovely shades of complexity. This is the first vintage that includes fruit from the Marcorini cru in Neive to round out estate fruit from Tre Stelle."
