Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1996 750ml
"The 1996 Barolo Cascina Francia is a prototypical wine for the vintage. Hard as nails and completely forbidding when it was first released, the 1996 has developed into a stellar wine. A host of orange peel, iron, rose petal, melted road tar, licorice and plum notes give the 1996 its layers of aromatic nuance. Brooding and inward, the 1996 needs several hours of air to be at its best. Tasted again a day later, the 1996 started to soften and show a more delicate side of its personality. Well-stored bottles will drink well for 20-30 years, perhaps more. 95 points” Antonio Galloni Vinous Media
