95 points "This is so powerful and flavourful, with masses of character of peaches, blackberries and minerals. It is full and very round with fine tannins and bright acidity. Love the aftertaste. An incredible Barbera. This shows the master winemaking ability of Roberto Conterno as well as the greatness of 2011 for Barbera in Piedmont. Wine Advocate -- 92pts The 2011 Barbera d’Alba Cascina Francia expresses itself with floral tones of pressed rose, wild berry and crushed mineral. The power and intensity of the bouquet is especially attractive and bold. The wine’s dark concentration and thick layers are so beautifully uplifted by those ethereal and almost feminine aromas. These are two very different expressions of Barbera, each one carefully marked by its specific territory. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022 " Best 2013-2022
