Tasting Notes

Giacomo Conterno's 2000 Barolo Cascina Francia is beautifully fleshy and supple in its radiant red fruit, freshly cut roses and licorice. The 2000 is a wonderfully open, seductive vintage for Cascina Francia, yet the wine has more than enough freshness to drink well for many, many years. Round, silky tannins frame the generous finish. 2013 - 2030

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, June 2011

The depth and richness to this is really wonderful with a silky texture and finesse that shows incredible ripeness yet freshness. Full and balanced. So much mushroom and berry character. A little severe with the acidity. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold.
