    February 7, 2021 - Just as good as the last bottle! Wish I had a case or more of this.

    April 25, 2020 - Opened at 12pm to slow ox, double decanted at 5:30pm for sediment and enjoyed over 2-3 hours starting at 7pm.

    This wine even on initial opening smelled amazing, iron, rose, secondary red fruits, even more intoxicating when I double decanted though a little taste showed the palate to be a bit tighter.

    Wine was drinking near peak at 8pm! Have one more bottle and will revisit in ~5 years.

    February 25, 2017 - Burgundy-style elegant and nicely poised. Lovely.

    September 16, 2015 - This was a high performing bottle. Had a lot of Monfortino type notes, iron, winter spice, impeccably balanced, quite rich and well-balanced considering the vintage; excellent showing

    February 9, 2015 - Giacomo Conterno Dinner with Roberto Conterno (La Pizza Fresca Ristorante): Fully matured Barolo. Sweet, somewhat monolithic, and very smooth. Soaked barrel aromatics, hint of wild carnation, orange peel oil. Drink up.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia) Gorgeous nose of forest floor, roses, tar, hot rocks and some cherries. Some really dark burned wood character too. Lush and expansive on the palate showing lots of ripe fruit. Acidity is a touch low but this absolutely deliciosu today. Very impressive for '93. Seems the traditionalists really rocked in '93. A stunner and a sure sleeper.
