Barolo Sori Ginestra Conterno Fantino 93js Premier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Barolo Sori Ginestra comes across as less aromatically intriguing and more fruit-driven than is typically the case. The wine’s full-bodied, powerful personality is on full display, but the 2007 doesn’t seem to have the level of nuance and detail that it often does. Still, the 2007 is a hugely enjoyable Barolo that impresses for its textural richness and full-throttle personality. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027...94"WA "Roses and flower with dark fruits. Very Nebbiolo. Full bodied, and very chewy with lots of tannins but then turns fruity and tannin. Vibrant and zingy wine. Intense...93" JS 5/11

Conterno Fantino:
The making of high quality vine begin with the grapes. The work carried out in the vineyard ends with the harvest, and the winery takes over.
