Barbera d'Alba Cascina Francia Giacomo Conterno 2008

This is a much more sedate, serious, brooding style of Barbera, offering both spiced, dark fruit and a certain savoury element, underscored by a marked ferruginous minerality. The palate is restrained, a ripe tannic structure and mineral layer controlling a wealth of black fruit, cherries and blueberry notes. Concentrated and full, this shows elevating freshness and real staying power - deeply impressive.

"Purchased as wheat fields in 1974, the purchase of what became the Cascina Francia vineyard really established Giacomo Conterno in the region"
