Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Cascina Francia 2011


Lobenberg: Serralunga, eine schräge Wand aus hellem, kalkhaltigem Lehm und satten Metalleinlagerungen, vor allem viel Eisen. Maskuline, extrem kraftvolle Weine. Aber warum schafft Roberto Conterno dann diese Weine voller Finesse? Lediglich die von Cascina Francia umschlossene Parzelle des Monfortino ist reine Power, der Cascina Francia ist die blumige, rotfruchtige Frische. Mehr wie ein Colonello vom Cousin Aldo Conterno aus Monforte. Blumig, Rosen, Kirsche, extrem aromatisch und ausdrucksstark. Darunter Tabak und Rauch, Lavendel, Koreander, dominikanischer Tabak. Tolle Spannung und Dynamik, frisch, rassig, seidige Tanninmassen mit hoher Säure. Das ist großes Kino und immer einer der allerbesten Barolos. 96-97/100


Suckling über: Barolo Cascina Francia

-- Suckling: Glorious aromas of roses, whole white truffles, earth and raspberry. Dusty. Subtle rosemary and lemon grass too. Full-bodied, tight and structured. Yet it opens and caresses every inch of your palate. So gorgeous now to drink. No Monfortino in this year; so absolutely amazing because it all went in here. Wow. Drink or hold. 98/100


Galloni über: Barolo Cascina Francia

-- Galloni: A model of pure sensuality and grace, the 2011 Barolo Francia is utterly captivating today. An exquisite bouquet laced with crushed flowers and spices melds into a core of silky fruit in a deceptively mid-weight, regal Barolo. A host of chalky, mineral and savory notes - all signatures of Francia - underpin the fruit. The 2011 is polished and graceful to the core. In 2011, there is no Monfortino. Roberto Conterno opted to blend in that cask with his Francia casks. For about as long as I have known him, Conterno has been fervent in his belief that Nebbiolo can often overcome rain, even heavy rain, while excess heat and dryness are more challenging. Given that view, it's hardly a surprise Conterno did not make a Monfortino in 2003, 2007 or 2009. Next to the Francia Barolos in those vintages, the 2011 is quite a bit more lifted in style. -- Antonio Galloni 94-96/100
