Cascina Adelaide Barolo - 2001(W-252)

Cascina Adelaide Barolo
Big Powerful Earthy

Winery Story

Cascina Adelaide has been a working winery with its own "cru" vineyards - vineyards recognized on the basis of exposure, altitude, and soil ... (more...)characteristics as producing the highest quality grapes in the region - for over 100 years. Despite its location just below the castello of Barolo, it was basically unknown outside the local area until Amabile Drocco bought the property in 1999 and modernized it. Investment was made in new equipment, a top agronomist and winemaker were engaged, and a new state-of-the-art gravity-fed winery building was added on the property. In short, the potential of Cascina Adelaide is now being realized: to become one of the best producers in an area where world-class wine is already the norm.

Tasting Note

Lighter and more aromatic than the 2000 vintage, this wine still has a bold character of its own and will delight the palate with its strawb... (more...)erry, cherry, and floral notes. While it is delicious and easier to drink than many young Barolos, it will deepen in character when left to age on its own for a few years.
