Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Lacy, graceful and altogether wonderful, the ’11 Barolo Francia frames its pure Nebbiolo fruit with chalky minerals, crushed rose and violet petals, fresh-cut herbs, sun-warmed earth and truffles. Energetic yet caressing, this is an extraordinary Barolo that will reward the palates of wine-lovers who love traditional, terroir-driven wines. Formerly called “Cascina Francia,” Barolo Francia is special in every year, but in 2011, it’s more special because the Giacomo Conterno estate chose not to bottle its Monfortino this vintage, and all of the vineyard’s best fruit went into this remarkable bottling. The estate makes its Barolo Francia with natural yeasts, temperature controlled fermentation and a lengthy maceration of 3-4 weeks; after this, the wine ages in large Slavonian botti and in bottle for a total of four years.
