"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. In recent years, the Conterno Barolo Francia has often been relatively accessible post bottling, the 2015 is far from that."

The first nose aromas are ripe fruits, pickled cherries, Plum, BlackBerry and then close with hints of sweet licorice, leather and Earth. Light tannins In the mouth perfectly supported by a precious mineral. A structured wine but balanced, it combines with well-seasoned dishes and red meat and game.
