Regarded as one of the purest producers of Barolo, Giacomo Conterno hits it home yet again. Formerly named ‘Cascina Francia,’ Conterno’s signature cuvée is textured and spicy, full of red fruit flavors noted with leather and tar. Gritty tannins and a long finish assure that this wine will age gorgeously over the next two decades.
