Tasting Notes:
The fairly hot summer of 2007 ensures that this is drinking well already although there is no doubt that an hour in a decanter (or more bottle age) can only help make it even better. There is some lovely red/black fruit character with some enjoyable spice and notes of tobacco and truffle emerge. Glorious - and what a bargain!

Drinking Dates:

100% Nebbiolo
After pressing, the grapes ferment for eight days followed by a four day maceration. The wine matures for 18 months in barriques of which 30% are new and 70% used so as to not to extract too much oak during the process. There is additional fining in steel casks up to 12 months before bottling.
Critic Reviews:
"Cascina Saria is a relatively new producer in the Langhe, although the family has been growing grapes for generations. This Barbaresco shows tart aromas of berry fruit and white cherry, but it also offers accents of red apple, spice, wet earth and smoked bacon. There's more heft and consistency in the mouth, and the fruit flavors show the thick and chewy qualities of a hot vintage." 90/100 (Wine Enthusiast)
