Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 2012

SKU 1515


For 45 years, until his death in 2004, Giovanni Conterno forged a reputation as the greatest of all Barolo producers, irrespective of style. The wines he made were the quintessence of "traditional" Barolo: rich, powerful, massively structured, and capable of long development in bottle. For many, his heroic Monfortino-the product of wild temperature swings during fermentation and 6 to 8 years in barrel-is the most perfect expression of the Nebbiolo grape. As for his glorious Barolo Cascina Francia, it has long been the benchmark against which other producers measure their own efforts.
