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.
Cascina Bruciata offers one Barolo. The 2009 Barolo Cannubi-Muscatel is a subtle and elegant wine with bursting wild berry and red currant that underline the inherent warmth and sunshine of the 2009 vintage. I love the intensity and energy of this wine. Licorice, dried herbs and more bright berry fruit drive the wine forward over the palate. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
