Giacomo Conterno Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

9.453 ratings on Delectable
$192.99

Coming on the heels of the plush and seductive 2007, 2008 was written off on release as simply too tannic. Though we experienced the same, we decided to reserve any harsh, initial judgements for a later day. And boy are we thankful that we did! We are just beginning to get a glimpse of the magnitude and noble stature of this great wine. Yet still unapproachable now this is the perfect bottle for people who want to cellar in order to experience the wonders of Barolo that can only be revealed after prolonged cellaring.

Young, and surprisingly ripe. Cascina Francia regularly develops that extra notch of fruit, and it shows here - helping to make this more accessible now. Bodes well for the future, when that fruit pulls back a bit to reveal more complexity.

The Giacomo Conterno estate in Piemonte is the Godfather of Barolo producers and this finely crafted 2008 was like velvet in a glass...an ethereal red comparable to great Burgundy!

Power with transparency. The stuffing is there....still open for now but put this in the back of the cellar for 15+ years
