Giacomo Conterno 1998 Cascina Francia Barbera (Barbera d'Alba)

  1. $24

Complex and friendly aromas of fruitcake, almond candy, chocolate and herbs—basically almost anything you can think of is here. Berry flavors augmented by a nutty, almost spicy accent. Elegant and soft, if only slightly raisiny, in the finish.

Giacomo Conterno 1998 Cascina Francia Dolcetto (Dolcetto d'Alba)

  1. $22

The bouquet is nothing if not soft and lush—it’s like a giant bowl of fruit, chocolate and herbs. The body is on the acidic and crisp side, with the fruit base probably more like strawberry than traditional dark cherry. Appealing in that it finishes strong.
