Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) [95 pts Robert Parker] The recently-bottled 2005 Barolo Cascina Francia is as expected somewhat closed down at this stage from an aromatic perspective. That said it is impossible to ignore the wine’s richness and depth both of which are impressive. With time in the glass hints of sweet roses cherries spices and tar emerge all framed by impeccably silky tannins. As always readers should taste this wine as soon as possible as it will almost certainly head for a slumber during which it will be impossible to evaluate with any accuracy. Today this mid-weight graceful Barolo Cascina Francia looks read more...to be accessible relatively early which means around age 10-12 give or take. It is another superb Barolo from Giacomo Conterno.
