Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Cascina Francia, named for the superb 14-hectare vineyard that also provides grapes for Conterno’s masterful Monfortino, is arguably the one of the finest bottlings of Barolo and unquestionably epitome of a classic Barolo, an expression that presents “good body, alcohol, and tannins, plus that certain something that gives longevity”—elements that represent the pillars of a noble wine in the philosophy of Giacomo Conterno. Exquisite balance, trademark structure, fascinating complexity, along with ample fruit and a kaleidoscopic nose typify this quintessential Barolo. 2008’s long rainy season turned dry in August, something that benefitted the fussy Nebbiolo grape; warm late summer and early fall days were complemented by cool nights, working together to create a deeply aromatic Barolo of exceptional purity, great finesse and admirable class.
