Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba 'Francia' 2015

Regarded as Piedmont’s greatest producer of Barolo, Giacomo Conterno founded the estate in the early 20th century, producing world class Nebbiolo from 16 hectares in Serralunga d’Alba. The 2015 ‘Francia’ Barbera is full of ripe red fruit and bramble flavors, noted with earth spice, crushed rock, and a strong mineral presence. Aged 20 months in oak; known as Piedmont’s ‘everyday’ wine, this Barbera is too solid of an example to be missed!

Wine Type







High-acid high-fruit low-tannin planted in places Nebbiolo won’t grow and prized as the most versatile porch-pounder of Piedmont. It’s not without nobility -- just without pretense.
