Great 1989 Barolo tasted 1/2014

1. Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia (1989)

Next » 1 of 9
This is on another level with profound aromas of hot iron, hints of cinnamon, rosehips, rose petals and powdered rocks all embedded in this tight, sinewy core of powerful, dark strawberry laced fruit. On the palate this is just perfectly balanced. Everything is here. The core of fruit is powerful and dark, yet recalls strawberries and raspberry as well with incredible sweetly floral and medicinal spice inner mouth perfumes. This feels like it’s chiseled out of stone, so firm and taut in the mouth with a finish that just goes on and on showing off flashes of bitter cherry, bitter herbs and fine minerality all framed with an ethereal sweetness. Profound wine. 98pts
