7/16/05- Had at a tasting here. First bottle was off. 2nd was amazing Affrimed 1996 geniuous. Great buy. Wait until 2010 and kick ass. -- Rare- Conterno made a tiny amount of Barolo in the great 1996 vintage. But what he made is monumental: Daniel Thomases compares the '96 Monfortino to the legendary 1978 Monfortino, and there is little doubt that 1996 Cascina Francia will also rival its 1978 counterpart. For the first couple of years after release, the Cascina Francia's massive structure dominated the hidden core of dense fruit. But now, after 5 years in bottle, the powerful Conterno nose and rich Serralunga fruit is beginning to emerge. Steve Tanzer calls it 'impressively intense and powerfully structured, with penetrating, precise berry and mineral flavors.??? It is a great Barolo by any measure.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
