"Medium red. Superripe aromas of raspberry, cherry, redcurrant jam, strawberry, camphor and tartufi. Tightly wound and vibrant, with compelling density and clarity of red fruit flavor. Firm acidity and toothcoating tannins give this Barolo terrific structure and grip. Very long, vibrant aftertaste. Like the above two wines, this has fruit of steel."

"A young and dense current Barolo release is the 1995 Barolo Cascina Francia. It possesses classic Nebbiolo traits of melted asphalt, cedar wood, sweet cherries, rose petals, and truffles. Full-bodied, deep, and chewy, with an intriguing earthy smokiness, this full-bodied, tannic, impressively concentrated and endowed Barolo can be drunk now, but will be even better with an additional 2-4 years of cellaring; it will last for 15+ years. This impeccably made, traditional wine is not for everybody, but it will handsomely repay cellaring, and represents a winemaking style that, hopefully, will never be extinguished by the new, more supple-textured, darker-colored, earlier bottled wines."
