    Giacomo Conterno

    About Giacomo Conterno

    The Conterno name dominates Monforte d’Alba - with Aldo Conterno, Claudio Conterno, Paolo Conterno, Diego Conterno and Franco Conterno all producing exceptional wines.  But in international recognition, the name Giacomo Conterno is first among equals.  The winery was established in 1900 and today retains a traditional approach to their 17ha in Serralunga and Monforte.

    It is rare for a single producer to command such respect not only from lovers of the “King of Italian Wine”, but also from its peers, Giacomo Conterno is a bastion of traditional Barolo having been passed down through the years to Roberto Conterno, the third generation to be at the helm of his stunning family estate.

    A winemaker of uncommon talent, Roberto’s official ascension to the throne in 2003 merely followed a period of many years during which he was head vigneron, presiding over an elevation in the wines’ quality, marked by both huge critical scores and fervent demand. From their vineyards in Serralunga, the Conterno family has been crafting incredibly elegant and high-toned Barolo for decades.

    Vinous (94)

    The 2014 Barbera d'Alba Francia is a surprisingly rich, powerful wine, especially for the year. An exotic mélange of dark cherry, plum, lavender, sage, cloves and graphite builds in the glass. There is a level of demi-glace-like textural richness that is impossible to miss. Intense and virile, the 2014 will drink beautifully for a number of years.

    The 2015 Barbera d'Alba Francia is fabulous. Silky, supple and radiant, with no hard edges and exceptional balance, the 2015 comes across as a bit shy today, and yet there is so much to like. The ripe, radiant personality of the year dominates over the more savory/mineral notes that are typical of Barberas from this site, but the wine remains light on its feet and gracious. A rush of dark red and bluish-hued fruits, lavender and blood orange makes a strong closing statement.

    Wine Advocate (94+)

    One step up in intensity compared to the Barbera from the Cerretta vineyard, the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia is darker, richer and more opulent. Barbera is planted in the upper and lower parts of the Francia vineyard. That combination of elevations from this well-exposed amphitheater of vines makes for a balanced expression that is capped by both acidity and deep fruity intensity. The mouthfeel shows volume and rich textural layering.

    Conterno's 2017 Barbera d'Alba Francia is super-expressive and explosive, with soaring perfume and deep, plush fruit. Lavender, mint, spice and a core of inky, plush fruit all develop in the glass. In tasting, the Francia has a vertical lift to it that is compelling. The 2017 has tremendous aromatic and structural intensity that will start to blossom in another few years' time.

    The 2018 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia is an explosion of floral, savory and mineral notes. Like the Cerretta, the Francia Barbera is quite delicate in this vintage. It has a bit darker fruit, stronger savory undertones and a touch more depth. It is a beguiling, beautifully layered wine that unfolds graciously over time.

    The 2019 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia marries elegance, power and energy. Inky blue/purplish fruit, menthol, licorice and sage are some of the nuances that build as this creamy, textured Barbera slowly opens in the glass. The Francia is wonderfully somber and mysterious, with striking shades of dimension that reveal themselves over time. The 2019 was just bottled, but its pedigree is evident.

    The 2018 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Cerretta is so elegant and refined in this vintage. The 2018 is lithe and precise, with lovely red berry, floral and blood orange flavors that are woven together into a fabric of total class. The long, silky finish is a thing of beauty. With a bit of time, the Cerretta starts to show its trademark pliancy. I would give it a few years in bottle.

    The 2019 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Cerretta is bright and fresh, with plenty of red-toned fruit lifted by blood orange, mint and spice accents. Medium in body and super-refined, the Vigna Cerretta sizzles with tension and energy. Its effusive aromatics and vibrancy provide a fascinating contrast to the Francia Barbera.

    Wine Advocate (95)

    Introducing the 2015 Barolo Arione. This is the first vintage produced of the newest wine to join the extended and ever-evolving Conterno portfolio. Only three oak casks were produced: the one I tasted from to write this review, one that was auctioned off to charity and the third botte that ended up becoming part of the iconic Monfortino blend. That fruit from the recently acquired Arione vineyard would be deemed good enough to end up in Monfortino tells a lot about how confident Roberto Conterno is in this product. From a tasting point of view, this wine is characterized by richness and density, with a polished mineral note that never hides from view. The richness of the soils in this vineyard correspond to the density and structure of the wine. Most of the vineyard was planted in the 1960s with some replants throughout the 1980s and 1990s. If Francia is elegance, Arione is power.

    Vinous (94)

    The 1990s were both sensational. Actually, we had three 1990 Barolos. Conterno did not make any Barolo in 1991 and 1992. In order to stretch out their 1990s over these vintages Conterno left one lot of the 1990 Barolo Cascina Francia in barrel a year later than normal. So, there are two different bottlings of the 1990 Cascina Francia. Unfortunately we didn’t know that before the wines were decanted, so we had to deduce through tasting which might be which. I am not sure we got it right, but the first 1990 was rich, seductive and very representative of the vintage, while the second bottle had more of everything. It was essentially a mini-Monfortino in its majestic expression of intensely perfumed fruit. (Bottles of the 1990 Barolo Cascina Francia that were shipped to the US through official channels were all from the original release, but no lot number is indicated on the label. Conterno released both versions of the 1990 Cascina Francia in Italy and in other markets. Bottles with a lot number beginning with 4 are from the lot that spent 4 years in oak, while bottles with a lot number beginning with 5 spent an extra year in cask.)

    Giacomo Conterno's 1997 Barolo Cascina Francia was also fabulous. The 1997 vintage seems to have yielded great wines in some of Piedmont's poorer soils, as this heroic Barolo amply demonstrated. The 1997 was pure Serralunga Barolo, which is to say roses, tar and licorice galore on a frame of substantial depth and pure breed.

    The 1998 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia has developed beautifully since I last tasted it about a year ago. This bottle was especially open. It presented sweet, floral notes and a layered quality to the fruit, with fine tannins on the long finish, giving the impression of being a more slender Cascina Francia than is normally the case.

    Vinous (97)

    The 2012 Barolo Francia is wonderfully expressive today. Much more open than the Barolo Cerretta tasted alongside it, the Francia bristles with energy. Floral and mineral overtones add to an impression of brightness, yet there is plenty of underlying tannin and overall structure. In 2012, Roberto Conterno did not bottle his flagship Barolo Monfortino. Instead, the cask that would have been destined for Monfortino was blended into the Francia. Historically, that decision has often resulted in a 'super Francia.' It will be interesting to see if the 2012 gains volume and depth in aging. I have to say, the wine is surprisingly accessible in the early going, although it has just been bottled and is likely to close down at some point. All the promise the 2012 showed in cask comes through loud and clear.

    The 2015 Barbera d'Alba Francia is fabulous. Silky, supple and radiant, with no hard edges and exceptional balance, the 2015 comes across as a bit shy today, and yet there is so much to like. The ripe, radiant personality of the year dominates over the more savory/mineral notes that are typical of Barberas from this site, but the wine remains light on its feet and gracious. A rush of dark red and bluish-hued fruits, lavender and blood orange makes a strong closing statement.

    Wine Advocate (94+)

    One step up in intensity compared to the Barbera from the Cerretta vineyard, the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia is darker, richer and more opulent. Barbera is planted in the upper and lower parts of the Francia vineyard. That combination of elevations from this well-exposed amphitheater of vines makes for a balanced expression that is capped by both acidity and deep fruity intensity. The mouthfeel shows volume and rich textural layering.

    Conterno's 2017 Barbera d'Alba Francia is super-expressive and explosive, with soaring perfume and deep, plush fruit. Lavender, mint, spice and a core of inky, plush fruit all develop in the glass. In tasting, the Francia has a vertical lift to it that is compelling. The 2017 has tremendous aromatic and structural intensity that will start to blossom in another few years' time.

    The 2018 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia is an explosion of floral, savory and mineral notes. Like the Cerretta, the Francia Barbera is quite delicate in this vintage. It has a bit darker fruit, stronger savory undertones and a touch more depth. It is a beguiling, beautifully layered wine that unfolds graciously over time.

    The 2019 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia marries elegance, power and energy. Inky blue/purplish fruit, menthol, licorice and sage are some of the nuances that build as this creamy, textured Barbera slowly opens in the glass. The Francia is wonderfully somber and mysterious, with striking shades of dimension that reveal themselves over time. The 2019 was just bottled, but its pedigree is evident.

    The 2018 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Cerretta is so elegant and refined in this vintage. The 2018 is lithe and precise, with lovely red berry, floral and blood orange flavors that are woven together into a fabric of total class. The long, silky finish is a thing of beauty. With a bit of time, the Cerretta starts to show its trademark pliancy. I would give it a few years in bottle.

    The 2019 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Cerretta is bright and fresh, with plenty of red-toned fruit lifted by blood orange, mint and spice accents. Medium in body and super-refined, the Vigna Cerretta sizzles with tension and energy. Its effusive aromatics and vibrancy provide a fascinating contrast to the Francia Barbera.

    Wine Advocate (95)

    Introducing the 2015 Barolo Arione. This is the first vintage produced of the newest wine to join the extended and ever-evolving Conterno portfolio. Only three oak casks were produced: the one I tasted from to write this review, one that was auctioned off to charity and the third botte that ended up becoming part of the iconic Monfortino blend. That fruit from the recently acquired Arione vineyard would be deemed good enough to end up in Monfortino tells a lot about how confident Roberto Conterno is in this product. From a tasting point of view, this wine is characterized by richness and density, with a polished mineral note that never hides from view. The richness of the soils in this vineyard correspond to the density and structure of the wine. Most of the vineyard was planted in the 1960s with some replants throughout the 1980s and 1990s. If Francia is elegance, Arione is power.

    Vinous (94)

    The 1990s were both sensational. Actually, we had three 1990 Barolos. Conterno did not make any Barolo in 1991 and 1992. In order to stretch out their 1990s over these vintages Conterno left one lot of the 1990 Barolo Cascina Francia in barrel a year later than normal. So, there are two different bottlings of the 1990 Cascina Francia. Unfortunately we didn’t know that before the wines were decanted, so we had to deduce through tasting which might be which. I am not sure we got it right, but the first 1990 was rich, seductive and very representative of the vintage, while the second bottle had more of everything. It was essentially a mini-Monfortino in its majestic expression of intensely perfumed fruit. (Bottles of the 1990 Barolo Cascina Francia that were shipped to the US through official channels were all from the original release, but no lot number is indicated on the label. Conterno released both versions of the 1990 Cascina Francia in Italy and in other markets. Bottles with a lot number beginning with 4 are from the lot that spent 4 years in oak, while bottles with a lot number beginning with 5 spent an extra year in cask.)

    Giacomo Conterno's 1997 Barolo Cascina Francia was also fabulous. The 1997 vintage seems to have yielded great wines in some of Piedmont's poorer soils, as this heroic Barolo amply demonstrated. The 1997 was pure Serralunga Barolo, which is to say roses, tar and licorice galore on a frame of substantial depth and pure breed.

    The 1998 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia has developed beautifully since I last tasted it about a year ago. This bottle was especially open. It presented sweet, floral notes and a layered quality to the fruit, with fine tannins on the long finish, giving the impression of being a more slender Cascina Francia than is normally the case.

    One of the best Cascina Francias in a long time. It shows aromas of melons and plums with hints of hazelnut and coca. Full body and dense with gorgeous silky tannins and an incredible finish.

    Vinous (97)

    The 2012 Barolo Francia is wonderfully expressive today. Much more open than the Barolo Cerretta tasted alongside it, the Francia bristles with energy. Floral and mineral overtones add to an impression of brightness, yet there is plenty of underlying tannin and overall structure. In 2012, Roberto Conterno did not bottle his flagship Barolo Monfortino. Instead, the cask that would have been destined for Monfortino was blended into the Francia. Historically, that decision has often resulted in a 'super Francia.' It will be interesting to see if the 2012 gains volume and depth in aging. I have to say, the wine is surprisingly accessible in the early going, although it has just been bottled and is likely to close down at some point. All the promise the 2012 showed in cask comes through loud and clear.
