Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Francia 2015


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. 97+/100


Galloni über: Barolo Francia

-- Galloni: The 2015 Barolo Francia is a soaring, regal wine endowed with tremendous intensity in all of its dimensions. The most reticent and inward of the 2015s, the Francia possesses superb textural density and persistence all the way through to the explosive finish. An immense, towering Barolo, the Francia is positively stellar. It is also going to require a number of years to be at its best. In recent years, the Conterno Barolo Francia has often been relatively accessible post bottling, the 2015 is far from that. 98/100


Parker über: Barolo Francia

-- Parker: Next comes 50-hectoliter botte number 88 that houses the upcoming 2015 Barolo Francia. Again, this wine will be bottled by the time you read this, with Conterno's newest vintages hitting the market in October. What impresses most here is the supreme elegance of the wine. It speaks in hushed whispers, enunciating promises of depth, complexity and mysterious intrigue. The wine unfolds slowly, revealing new elements with each swirl of the glass. Together, these aromas build in intensity and stature to become a magnificent Barolo with a capital B. The bouquet exudes elegance and complexity that will carry it through the ages. When I tasted this wine from barrel last year, I described it as demure. One year later, the wine is bursting with confidence, character and moxie. 97/100


Winespectator über: Barolo Francia

-- Winespectator: A rich, plum- and cherry-laced red, aligned with a sumptuous texture, lively acidity and refined tannins. Though dense, this remains light-footed and beautifully integrated. Bass notes of tar, soy, iron and tobacco add depth and complexity as this winds down on the finish. 97/100
