Description Sub Region Producer Notes
2007’s hot growing season pushed winemaker Roberto Conterno to make an unusual choice. He decided not to make his legendary Monfortino and devoted all the Francia fruit to make Cascina Francia. It was a good choice. Plush as a cashmere wrap, warm as an Ella Fitzgerald standard, and finessed as a Titian painting, the ’07 Cascina Francia is dark, concentrated, deep and reminiscent of the iconic 1990. Frisky sour cherries, rain-splattered flowers, underbrush and a streak of tar make this wine a delight, but its longevity will seal the deal with a nearly everlasting kiss. It’s an exceptionally accessible Barolo for Conterno, drinking soon and into the next three decades, and very likely longer.
