Cascina Bongiovanni

Crimson with garnet hues in color, the bouquet is extremely complex; in youth, it shows delicate fruity notes like raspberry and strawberry, as well as mint; in time, the nose evolves and acquires spicy nuances as well as hints of tobacco, goudron and roses confirmed on the full, luscious, velvet-textured palate. A modern-style Barolo whose ideal balance of components and soft, approachable dimension are particularly suited to the international market and the restaurant trade.

Wine Spectator

Shows sweet strawberry on the nose, with hints of flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a caressing finish. Elegant and refined. Best after 2011. 580 cases made.

Score: 89. —James Suckling, June 15, 2008.

Wine Advocate

The medium-bodied 2004 Barolo reveals beautiful color and expressive aromatics, with notable detail in its fruit and a pretty note of sweetness that lingers on the finish. This medium-bodied, entry-level Barolo should be a good relative value as well. Cascina Bongiovanni's Barolo is made from the less well-exposed portions of Pernanno in Castiglione Falletto and Ceretta in Serralunga. It is aged in French oak barrels, of which 20% are new. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.

Score: 89. —Antonio Galloni, December 2007.
