When it comes to the greatest wines produced in the world, two names inequivocably come up....Giacomo Conterno and Bruno Giacosa. New producers rise and fall, trends are continuosly re-shaped and taste change among consumers and collectors. But, there are comforting constants about which no one can ever argue about and those are the wines made by these two legendary producers.
Today, we have picked a very special new release by Giacomo Conterno. The Cascina Francia 2003 is truly a head-turner and a wine that can be appreciated even by those normally afraid of venturing into "Nebbiolo World". Unlike the wines from other vintages, the 2003 is one that can be fully appreciated within 1-2 years and offers a very long window of enjoyment.
It is a truly fabulous wine and we highly recommend it!


"The 2003 Barolo Cascina Francia is a remarkable wine for the vintage. This deep, powerful Barolo reveals awesome richness and an almost liqueur-like quality to its fruit that is balanced by the chalky mineral notes that provide freshness on the finish and help convey an impression of notable balance. In 2003 there is no Monfortino, and the Cascina Francia surely benefits from the addition of that juice which is mostly felt in the wine’s depth. Resisting the temptation to harvest too early, Roberto Conterno waited until October 8 to start picking in his Cascina Francia vineyard, long after most producers had already brought the fruit in. He had the benefit of the late September rains that helped restore at least a little freshness to the fruit, and as a result his 2003 Cascina Francia doesn’t have the aggressive tannins that plague so many wines. Simply put, this is a stunning Barolo made all the more notable by the challenging conditions the vintage presented. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2023. 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
