Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barbera d'Alba Francia 2008


Lobenberg: Barbera aus Serralunga. Man denkt unwillkürlich an eisenhaltige, lehmige Böden, maskuline Weine, reine Kraft. Aber Roberto Conterno kommt mit seinen familiären Wurzeln aus Monforte und verfolgt eben einen Finesseweg wie die Cousins von Aldo Conterno. Delikate Weine, blumig, voll frischer Rasse und Finesse. Rote statt schwarze und blaue Frucht, Minze, Kirsche in allen Schattierungen, Rosenblätter, Salz und Gesteinsmehl. Power und spannungsgeladene Intensität in Tateinheit mit verspielter, seidiger, verträumter Komplexität und samtigem Trinkfluss. Sehr schick. 94/100


Galloni über: Barbera d'Alba Francia

-- Galloni: A reticent wine, the 2008 Barbera d'Alba Cascina Francia remains incredibly tight, which is amazing as it has been in bottle now for a few years. Pure power and structure dominate in a wine that impresses for its persistence and overall balance. Ideally the 2008 could use at least another year or two in bottle. -- Antonio Galloni 92+/100


Parker über: Barbera d'Alba Francia

-- Parker: The 2008 Barbera d’Alba Cascina Francia is a classic Conterno Barbera. Layers of dark, brooding fruit come forth gradually, along with exotic scents of new leather, licorice, tar and soy that add complexity. This is a decidedly reserved, mineral-driven Barbera that will appeal most to readers who appreciate the focused side of Barbera as opposed to more opulent vintages such as 2007 where the fruit is decidedly forward. The Cascina Francia shows greater richness and density than the Ceretta, suggesting the direction that wine is likely to take in coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2023. 92/100


Suckling über: Barbera d'Alba Francia

-- Suckling: The nose is floral with a mushroom and ripe berry character. Clean fruit and a delicate herbal finish round out this pretty wine. The subtlety leads you on and an incredible mineral finish sneaks up on you on the finish. Find the wine 91/100
