  • The Nebbiolo for Cascina Francia and Conterno's illustrious Monfortino share the same 35 acre vineyard, but since Conterno did not produce a Monfortino in 2009, all of that amazing fruit was declassified, and pumped into the Francia. Vinification takes place in wooden vats and aging is four years in large oak casks. Super old school. Wonderfully complex, and truly spectacular.
