The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Cascina Francia is at first quite a bit more floral and ethereal than the Cerretta but with time in the glass the wine finds its center. The Cascina Francia dazzles with its combination of expressive generous fruit and insistent minerality. Sweet herbs roses spices anise licorice and leather add complexity to a core of radiant fruit. This is a regal aristocratic Barbera of the highest level. The 2009 has the openness of vintages such as 2007 but with the medium-bodied structure and finesse of silkier vintages such as 2004 which is a very appealing combination. This is a very complete harmonious wine from Roberto Conterno. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2029. -AG
