Reviews/Information
"95 out of 100 - Sadly, in 1989 Mother Nature was not kind to Conterno, as hail wreaked havoc on the vines. There was no Monfortino that year, and Conterno released just 4,000 bottles of his 1989 Barolo Cascina Francia. Leather, spices, tobacco and licorice are some of the nuances that emerge from this austere, powerful Barolo. In this context, next to a set of profound 1989s and Conterno's own 1990s, the wine suffers a bit, but it is still magical juice. At some point in the future, the wine's structural components are likely to dominate over the fruit, but that date appears to be well off in the future. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
