Vigna Elena was the first vineyard of Cascina Nuova to be replanted, precisely in 1991, just after Elvio Cogno decided to buy the property.

What distinguishes this vineyard from others of the Cascina Nuova amphitheater—more than the southeastern exposure or the laminated Sant’Agata Fossili Marls that dominate the MGA Ravera—is the sub-variety of Nebbiolo used: the rosé, which more than anything else influences the personality of this wine: less intense color, more ample and floral aromas, but still solid structure and character.

The altitude is very similar to that of other Cascina Nuova vineyards.
