2lbsl, 1hbsl, 2lnl, 1lscl, 1wisl
"A classic in the making, the 1999 Cascina Francia offers a quintessentially pure expression of Nebbiolo in it aromas of roses, licorice and tar. It is powerful and potent on the palate, where endless layers of sweet fruit blossom with exceptional length." (94pts Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate In the Cellar, May 2006)
"Consumers in search of the epitome of classic Barolo will be well rewarded in the 1999 Barolo Cascina Francia, a vintage which the family is very happy with. Medium garnet (color is never particularly deep here), its spicy-resinous nose, warm, penetrating, and alcoholic, promises much pleasure, a commitment which the palate respects in its ample texture, superior continuity and drive, lovely kirsch and licorice flavors, and unusually supple tannins. Substantial and enveloping, it will easily evolve well for twenty years." (92 pts. Daniel Thomases, Wine Advocate #149, Oct. 2003)
