Giacomo Conterno Barolo 'Francia' 1998

Known for producing some of Piedmont’s greatest Nebbiolo and Barbera, Giacomo Conterno has become regarded as regional winemaking royalty, crafting world-famous cuvées for the last 100 years. ‘Francia’ is a classic Barolo, showing powerful body, alcohol, and present tannins, as well as incredible aging potential. The 1998 vintage is highly developed, drinking beautifully right now. Bright red fruit and highly perfumed; still showing a lively, energetic acidity.

Nebbiolo

This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).

Barolo, Italy

'King' and 'Queen,' respectively, of Italian red wine, both 100% Nebbiolo grown on undulating hillsides near the Piedmontese town of Alba. Heady, spicy, wildly aromatic reds that are built to last.
