Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The 2005 vintage of Barolo Cascina Francia is elegant and sophisticated, layering its nuanced red and blue fruits with crushed rose petals, tarry earth, licorice, and touches of new leather, baking spices, cedar and crushed river rocks. Silky yet restrained, this wine offers ample fine-grained tannins that cling to the cheeks and provide a counterbalance to the wine’s crisp acidity and delicate inner perfume. Superbly structured, the ’05 Barolo Cascina Francia is just beginning to enter its drinking window, and it’ll be enjoyable for decades to come. Barolo Cascina Francia gets its name from the superb 40-acre vineyard (about ten acres planted to Nebbiolo) that also provides grapes for Conterno’s masterful Monfortino. The estate ferments its Barolo Francia with natural yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats with a lengthy maceration of 3 to 4 weeks, and the wine ages in large Slavonian botti and in bottle for a total of four years.
