Description

Cascina Adelaide Barolo Fossati

Cascina Adelaide Barolo Fossati is a dark ruby red colour with rich plum and mulberry fruit, balsamic notes and spice. Combined with elegant tannin this is a truly wonderful wine.

Situated on a privately owned vineyard at “Fossati”, in La Morra on a South, South East facing slope at an altitude of 400 metres. Soils consist of tortonian, limestone and blue clay, with vines trained Guyot grown on a counter trellis system. With an average planting density of 5000 vines per hectare, yield is reduced with the use of the cluster thinning method.

The grapes are hand picked into in 20kg boxes and crushed within a few hours of picking. Fermentation is controlled at 32° C with repeated but gentle pumping over. Maceration takes around 350 hours after which the wine is put into wooden barrels were malolactic fermentation takes place.

After a highly successful engineering career, Amabile Droco achieved his lifetime’s ambition when he purchased an old farmhouse and the accompanying vineyards in the heart of the village of Barolo. The employment of a top new winemaking team and the construction of an incredible new subterranean winery had a predictably positive effect on the quality of the wines produced but what really sets Cascina Adelaide apart is their vineyard holdings and their commitment to demonstrating the diversity of the terroirs within the Barolo DOCG.

They now own top sites in 8 out of the 10 Barolo “Crus” with plans to get to 10 as and when the right sites become available. A horizontal tasting of the wines demonstrates the clearly defined characteristics of each of the vineyards in terms of fruit concentration, elegance and the structure of the tannins enabling the taster to appreciate not only the quality of the whole range but also which style is their own individual preference.

Nor have the journalists been slow to recognise the fantastic quality of the wines with a number of the wines awarded 95 points from Wine Spectator as well as consistently coming out on top in Decanter tastings.

Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet 2014

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
