    Description

    Barolo 1990
    Cascina Francia, G. Conterno
    4scl
    Bottle (12)


    "The wine is amazingly impactful and elegant with a profound sense of varietal pureness. The bouquet opens to licorice, cola, dried cherries, prune, truffle, menthol after-tones and hickory smoke. The lingering effects are buoyant and bright. Silky tannins wrap gently on the finish and the wine feels polished and smooth with superb textural finesse. There’s a profound life force within that will pay it forward for another decade of cellar aging, or more." (98 pts. Monica Larner, Wine Advocate #213, July 2014)


    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
