Conterno Cascina Francia Barolo 2006 is “beauty and majesty.”

There is no greater traditional Barolo producer than Giacomo Conterno!  Wine writer from The Age and Gourmet Traveller Wine writes about the Cascina Francia Barolo 2006 …”As with so many 2006 Barolos, time is going to be an essential ingredient as these youthful wines are tight, muscular, super tannic and powerful.  Only time mellows all that …Lurking beneath its imposing structure and weighty tannins, is Cascina Francia’s tell-tale spice notes – anise, loicorice, tar and roses melded with cleansing acidity, savoury too with a persistent, long finish.  Still sleeping so give this time ad consider it a cellar addition for up to 20 plus years.  And if there is a Barolo that can sway people to the beauty and majesty of nebbiolo, (this) is it.”  Jane Faulkner Oct 2010.
