1990 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia Nebbiolo
One of the most famous names of Piemonte, Cantine Giacomo Conterno was
formed in 1908 when Giacomo's father started a wine bar in the village
of San Giuseppe. Giovanni made Barolo from purchased grapes and their
flagship Riserva Barolo, Monfortino, was first bottled in either 1912
or 1920. When Giovanni died in 1934, his son Giacomo took over running
both the tavern and the winery and he produced some of the best Barolos
to come out of the region. In 1961, the business passed to Giacomo's
two sons, Giovanni and Aldo, who split the lands in half so that Aldo
could experiment with new Barolos and Giovanni could carry on the
traditions of his father and grandfather by producing classic Barolos.
"The producer Giacomo Conterno is clearly one of the two greatest names in all of Piemonte (the other being Bruno Giacosa), and each and every wine that bears the Conterno label is a profound example of its varietal and underlying terroir. While Monfortino is justifiably celebrated as one of the world's very greatest red wines, the Barolo 'Cascina Francia' is often very close to the quality of the Riserva, and is also one of the finest bottlings in all of Barolo. The Conterno uncompromising commitment to quality does not stop with Barolo, as their Barbera is one of the most age-worthy and brilliant examples of this underrated grape to be found in Piemonte. And on the rare occasions when one can find a bottle of Conterno Nebbiolo d'Alba, rest assured that it is a lovely bottle of lighter styled and complex nebbiolo that would outclass many another producer's Barolo." www.de-vino.com
