Barbaresco has always lived under the shadow of its famous neighbour, Barolo. The production, which is only a third that of Barolo, has an advantage over its big brother in that the nebbiolo grapes in Barbaresco tend to mature slightly earlier than in Barolo and therefore is less likely to suffer the effects of bad weather at the end of the growing season, consequently produces a more consistent wine. Cascina Morassino is a small; family owned estate and the owner and winemaker is Roberto Bianco, from the latest generation of the family, and he trained at the highly regarded Alba Enological School. A single vineyard wine from the overlooked village of Barbaresco – great value from one of Italy’s finest wines. A massive wine of great structure. A deeply perfumed nose, a firm dryness on the palate and it finishes with great elegance and length.
