    Barolo 1990
    Cascina Francia, G. Conterno
    bsl, tl
    Bottle (1)

    "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, #213, July 2014)

    Estimate: $375 - $475.
