Barbera Cascina Francia Giacomo Conterno 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Barbera d’Alba Cascina Francia expresses itself with floral tones of pressed rose, wild berry and crushed mineral. The power and intensity of the bouquet is especially attractive and bold. The wine’s dark concentration and thick layers are so beautifully uplifted by those ethereal and almost feminine aromas. These are two very different expressions of Barbera, each one carefully marked by its specific territory. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022...91-93." WA 6/13

High toned on the nose with aromas of blue mineral earth, dusty, blue flowers, and wild berry fruit that shows a bit more red fruit character than the Cerretta. This shows great focus and definition in the mouth with great old vine character, elegant yet really snappy and well focused. There’s an amazing purity and rawness to this, it’s fresh and shows not a hint of alcohol with incredible purity to the fruit that widens out on the back end with black spices, a nice earthy, mineral component and fleshy, ripe plummy fruit supported by gentle tannins. With ait this does develop a leathery note on the nose which might be off-putting to some, but I just kept on drinking this. Awesome Barbera. 95pts
