Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Giacomo Conterno’s 2015 Barolo Francia is stunning, and its seamless, ethereal, and complex character embodies the greatness of its vintage. Layers and layers of red and blue fruits, warm spices, tarry earth, blood orange zest, rose petals, and crushed river rocks unfold from the glass in this Barolo’s kaleidoscopic nose. Finessed and detailed, this wine unspools its myriad notes with a deft touch, while its chewy tannins and vivid acidity provide the ideal framework for this age-worthy, elegant wine. Barolo Francia, formerly called “Barolo Cascina Francia,” gets its name from the superb 35-acre vineyard (about ten acres planted to Nebbiolo) that also provides grapes for Conterno’s masterful Monfortino. The estate makes its Barolo Francia with natural yeasts, temperature-controlled fermentation, and a lengthy maceration of 3-4 weeks; the wine ages in large Slavonian botti and in bottle for a total of four years.
