2015 Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra
Deep ruby red with a powerful, lingering nose conjuring up fruit of the forest and dog-roses. Rich, dry, and packed with body. A wonderful pairing with meat, pasta and aged cheese.
You'll find broader strokes and more heft in the 2015 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra than in the other crus from Conterno Fantino, along with extra levels of power and dimension. This vintage boasts lots of fiber and intensity, with dark fruit contrasting against spice, tar and tobacco. The wine shows more structure at the back, too, one of the important differences that makes this wine well suited to longer cellar aging. This is simply a complete Barolo with gorgeous texture, so fine and detailed, and it will hold up for years to come. – 96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
