Category Red Wine
Origin Italy, Piedmont, Barolo
Brand Conterno-Fantino
Deep garnet red with ruby highlights, with a rich, fruity and persistent bouquet of rose petals, brushwood and blackberries and a full-bodied, luscious, and austere palate. A wonderful accompaniment to meat, pasta and aged cheese. A nice complement to rabbit stewed in red wine.

Of these new Baroli from Conterno Fantino, the 2016 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra shows the most underlying power, linearity and determination. While the other wines are a little softer and richer, especially on the mid-palate, this wine is all muscle and brawn. With its 15% alcohol content, its abundant bouquet and tight structural presentation, you should count on an extra long drinking window. Wait to pull the cork after the 10-year mark. At this young stage, the bouquet presents layered aromas of red fruit, tar, spice, ferrous earth and candied orange peel. There are hints of mint, eucalyptus and campfire ash. All said and done, this is a 11,700-bottle release of majesty and beauty that will make a proud and important protagonist of any collector's cellar.

The 2016 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra is rich and ample, with all of the textural resonance that this wine always shows. A rush of black cherry, plum, licorice, lavender, spice and menthol builds in a sumptuous, racy Barolo loaded with personality. Aging in oak accentuates the wine's body and overall richness.
