Lot #614. Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1997

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 96 AG.
"Giacomo Conterno's 1997 Barolo Cascina Francia was also fabulous. The 1997 vintage seems to have yielded great wines in some of Piedmont's poorer soils, as this heroic Barolo amply demonstrated. The 1997 was pure Serralunga Barolo, which is to say roses, tar and licorice galore on a frame of substantial depth and pure breed. This wine was tasted over dinner at the 9th Annual Wine Dinner and Auction to Benefit The Mount Sinai Hospital in February 2012." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Feb 2012
Provenance: The Sillín Cellar
Notes: Lightly scuffed, lightly bin soiled, nicked label.
