Run by Roberto Bianco and called a winery to watch, Cascina Morassino is one of the oldest producers of Barbaresco yet manages to slip largely under the radar. With a total of only 3.5 HA of vines in production, this wine comes from the tiny but prestigious Ovello vineyard, It is the longer lived (and perhaps more modern) of the two cuvees produced here, having been aged in barrique and with greater density of fruit.
Balsamic aromas, leather, truffle, soil and ripe berry scents take center stage. The chewy, structured palate offers succulent Morello cherry, fleshy raspberry and cake spice alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. A star anise note closes the finish. Drink 2018–2025.
Enjoy it with Duck, Roasted Red Meats or Game as well as Rich Pasta Dishes.92 point Wine Enthusiast .
