G. Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1998

14.5% Imported by Vin Divino, Il.

This was from the infamous Binny's sale of this wine and my only one.

Getting to the point, I did not like this wine. There was too much of something that wasn't my style. I did not notice any faults with the wine and it didn't appear to be stripped of fruit by TCA. Not easily recognizable as Barolo, it was aggressive and not expansive. Given the positive comments elsewhere I guess I should conclude it was a bad bottle. We didn't finish it and it did not get better with time, even the next day. Glad I didn't pay the going rate.
