Cascina delle Rose produces the only single Cru from Tre Stelle. From south-facing slopes, the wine shows off the more aromatic, gentler side of Barbaresco, and it usually opens up earlier than the Rio Sordo. Farming and wine-making is all organic and traditional.

Barbaresco, to a much greater extent than Barolo, is home to many small, family-owned producers who fly under the radar due to their size. Cascina delle Rose is one of them, with just three hectares of land dedicated to vines.

They make traditional, highly aromatic and decidedly elegant Barbarescos that are often described as feminine. Comparisons with Chambolle Musigny are apt. The farming is organic and the wine-making is straightforward and hands off. Aging is entirely in large, neutral Slavonian casks.

They release just two Barbarescos, and both are single Crus. They are the only producer to release a Tre Stelle single vineyard, and the wine from that Cru is always focused, floral, raspberry-tinged, and very much on the drinkable side of Barbaresco. The Rio Sordo is a little more beastly, with more structure and an earthy side.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 94
"Compared to the Rio Sordo, the Cascina delle Rose 2018 Barbaresco Tre Stelle is slightly more robust and open-knit. This wine shows a more overt concentration that comes across with blackberry and wild cherry. To the palate, it shows a smooth but nicely elaborate texture. There are light touches of crushed stone and even some tobacco on the close." -Robert Parker
