A soft and elegant Cascina Francia that shows very clean focused notes of sweet red cherry fruit licorice cocoa and mint with good length and overall balance. Although it lacks the complexity of the greatest vintages the precocious 2000 is accessible and immensely rewarding today. 92 points/drink after 2007 tasted 05/05 Conterno makes two Barolos both from the Cascina Francia vineyard one of the great monopole sites in Piedmont. The vineyard was purchased by Giovanni Conterno in 1974 and measures six hectares. Cascina Francia is made in a traditional style with natural yeasts and temperature-controlled fermentation and maceration lasting 3-4 weeks. The wines are aged in large Slavonian oak casks and are bottled in the summer of the fourth year following the harvest.

Interesting aromas of fresh mushrooms and ripe fruit follow through to a full-bodied palate with mahogany character and a plummy finish. Needs some time to come together. Beautiful wine. Best after 2007. 1500 cases made... Interesting aromas of fresh mushrooms and ripe fruit follow through to a full-bodied palate with mahogany character and a plummy finish.
