Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia 2020
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera d'Alba|
The 2020 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Francia is fabulous. Rich and expansive, with tremendous presence, the 2020 is positively stellar. Super-ripe dark cherry, lavender, spice and pomegranate all gain volume and intensity with time in the glass. The 2020 is one of the finest recent editions of the Francia Barbera I can remember tasting. Today, it's explosive, heady personality is impossible to resist.
Dark and brooding, this red delivers blackberry, plum, tamarind and light earth flavors allied with a rich texture. Firms up, with light tannins gracing the finish. Compelling, thanks to underlying mineral and saline elements. Drink now through 2027. 1,667 cases made.
