Winemaking Notes: The skins remain in contact with the must during fermentation, which lasts around 3 weeks. Fermentation occurs naturally with native yeast. The skins are submersed during fermentation via pump overs. After the alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation completes in the cellar at temperature of 20°C (68°F). The wine ages in large traditional Slavonian oak casks for 18 to 22 months and matures in the bottle for at least 8 months. No filtration or clarification is done before bottling.

Pairing Suggestions:
Red meat dishes, roasts, and mature cheeses.

    Cascina delle Rose's 2015 Barbaresco Tre Stelle is gorgeous, perfumed and beautifully lifted. Crushed flowers, dried cherry, tobacco, sage, leather and menthol are all laced together in a silky, mid-weight Barbaresco that will be hard to resist, even in its youth. The 2015 is not an obvious wine, but rather a Barbaresco that is all about understatement and pure class. Hints of sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and savory herbs grace the silky finish.

    The 2015 Barbaresco Tre Stelle is a balanced and well-tempered expression of Nebbiolo. This pretty wine opens to bright aromas of blue violets, rose hip and forest berry. The main theme here is finesse, and it is fully explored from start to finish, from nose to palate. This is a lean-bodied wine with silky, long intensity.

    (Cellar Selection) Delicate tantalizing scents of woodland berry, rose petal, iris and exotic spice mingle with new leather and a balsamic whiff of cedar. The palate is ethereal, delivering cranberry, red cherry, star anise, brown pepper and crushed herb alongside tight fine-grained tannins. It's still youthfully austere and needs time to come around and develop even more complexity. Drink 2025–2035.
