“In 2011, the Francia is a Barolo of nearly indescribable class.”

自成一格且獨霸酒壇的Monfortino,只有在所有條件都俱備時才能生產,這些條件,在世代以父傳子的Giacomo Conterno酒莊,早已有著絲毫不可妥協的標準。本世紀以來,繼2003、2007和2009之後,莊主Roberto Conterno也決定不生產2011年份的Monfortino。因此,已經培醞中原本用來釀造Monfortino的這一大桶Nebbiolo,便全數混入生產標準款的Barolo “Francia” 2011,讓同樣是居於頂尖地位的該酒款,品質不但更為優異且更添了幾分令人遐想的空間。

“Monfortino has not been made three times; 2003, 2007 and 2009, all warm vintages for Piedmont. In each of those years, the Francia was a big, racy Barolo. But the 2011 is totally different. Readers will find a sublime, aromatically lifted Barolo that has virtually nothing in common with 2003, 2007 or 2009.”                  --Antonio Galloni

“Conterno's 2011 Barolo Francia lifts from the glass with the most finessed, exquisite aromatics imaginable. Over the last decade, Monfortino has not been made three times; 2003, 2007 and 2009, all warm vintages for Piedmont. In each of those years, the Francia was a big, racy Barolo. But the 2011 is totally different. Readers will find a sublime, aromatically lifted Barolo that has virtually nothing in common with 2003, 2007 or 2009. Freshly cut flowers, mint, hard candy and a hint of vanillin are some of the notes that are woven together. In 2011, the Francia is a Barolo of nearly indescribable class. As a reminder, in 2011 Roberto Conterno did not bottle his flagship Barolo Riserva Monfortino. All of the juice was blended into the Francia, which, as readers will have noted, is now called Francia rather than Cascina Francia.”
