Description Sub Region Producer Notes
If 2007 offers a warm, welcoming embrace, 2006 Cascina Francia turns a classic profile; the two vintages perform perfectly complementary halves: two great back-to-back vintages that will remind collectors of the legendary 1989 and 1990. Roberto Conterno proudly told us that his 2006 may be one of the best Barolos he has ever produced, and the enticing ‘06 Cascina Francia shows gorgeous ripe dark fruit, a waft of incense and saddle leather, and chewy tannins that need some time to integrate. Cascina Francia 2006 gives a complex kaleidoscope nose--it’s like a deep breath of a year’s worth of fresh Piemonte air. While this wine is definitely austere in its youth, some time in the cellar will bring its roses, violets, tar and star anise into stunning harmony. Cellar for a couple of years and drink for the next three or four decades.
