Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Giacomo Conterno crafted a showstopping Barbera Vigna Francia in 2017. This wine captivates with its thrilling nose that layers its crisp red and juicy blue fruits with smoky minerals, tarry earth, and wild herbs, along with touches of spice and violet petals. Tensions between sweet fruits and savory minerals echo on the penetrating, focused palate, where plush dry extract finds its complement in driving acidity. Impressive and profound, this ’17 Barbera Cascina will drink for upwards of a decade! Deriving from Giacomo Conterno's mineral-rich Cascina Francia vineyard, this Barbera exemplifies the role that terroir plays a part in elevating Barbera, the “People’s Wine,” to sublimity. Grown alongside the Conterno's Nebbiolo grapes, this Barbera comes from the same vineyards as the world’s most famous Barolo, Monfortino; after temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine ages for about 21 months in botti before bottling.
