  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1989


    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 ... Read More

  • Conterno Giacomo Barbera Cascina Francia 2009


    A bit of wild mint and diesel shows up early on the nose along with some macerated huckleberry fruit. In the mouth this is tight, powerful and smooth, with acidity that is perhaps a touch low.

No affiliation with the retailer nor am I endorsing him by posting this, just a good price on one of the iconic wines of Piedmont.http://www.italianwinemerchan... Read More

  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1989


    The nose showed dried red fruits, tar, mushroom broth, a bit of black strap molasses and a hint of barnyard. Showed a gorgeous structure on the palate that gives the impression that this wine will last the ages. Still a little tight with a tannic grip but giving none the less with dark red fruit and a mineral core. Finish was long and fine, show... Read More
