"The garnet-ruby 2010 Barbaresco opens with beautifully etched aromas of flint, red berry, cassis, licorice and dried mint. The wine is tight and elegant on the finish but imparts noteworthy complexity as it warms and evolves in the glass. There's a crisp brightness to the mouthfeel that is enhanced by the wine's bright acidity and its young tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025."
"Until recently the vineyards of Cascina Bruciata ("house on fire") produced fruit that was purchased by Gaja and the Giacosa brothers of Neive among others. Marino Balbo (father) would have continued on this path were it not for the wish of his son Carlo who wanted to bottle a family wine instead. In 2000, Carlo established the brand Cascina Bruciata. He owns 7.5 hectares including three in the celebrated Rio Sordo cru. He will be releasing his first Barbera d'Alba later this year. This relative newcomer is full of delightful surprises. Winemaker Francesco Baravalle has done a terrific job." (06/13)
"The vines for our Barbaresco were planted more than 30 years ago by the present
ownerâs grandfather. like all the estateâs vineyards, these nebbiolo vines are
planted in the prestigious Rio Sordo cru and their deep roots produce wines that
excel in quality and personality in every vintage.
Fragrant floral aromas, ripe and fleshy, with a delicious medley of juicy plum, black
cherry and raspberry scent, finishing with a rich aftertaste and a long run of berry
flavors highlighted by a toffee scent.
this wine was born to be paired with only the best quality porcini mushrooms,
sheep's milk cheese and a beautiful evening with people you love." - Winery
"Our vineyards are located in Rio Sordo, one of the most prestigious and classic crus of the Barbaresco
wine region, and have always produced unique and elegant wines.
Carlo Balbo aims to bring out the best expression of the Rio Sordo cru in his wines and to produce
bottles that incite emotions, highlighting their authentic personality.
To this end, Carlo uses a precise and maniacal vineyard management protocol, oriented to an absolute
respect for his natural environment and a low, but balanced, crop production depending on the conditions
of each vintage."
"In the cellar, we focus on rigorous management of the fermentation processes with a medium-long skin
contact period to extract the maximum quality potential from the grapes. The ageing in barriques and/or
barrels is monitored meticulously and the duration of such is calibrated to enhance the balance between
the concentration of structure and aromatic elegance." - Winery
