Giacomo Conterno, Barolo Cascina Francia 1997

Giacomo Conterno Francia 1990

Imported by Vieux Vins, Vineburg CA.

Twenty years on.

Ruby. Serralunga’s classic tar and roses profile allied to a spicy calcaire freshness. Has a primordial vinosity, so deep it doesn’t register as power, with a notable charge of neat tannins underneath the christmas pudding fruit.  Long.  Now – 2027+.
