Conterno Fantino Barolo Sorì Ginestra 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dense and herbal on the nose with light toast setting off a core of dried fruit and herbs. Almost lush in the mouth with a lot of power behind the dense bitter black cherry fruit. This is tannic but the tannins are silky and the overall impression is of a wine that dense but not thick with good persistence to the spicy black cherry fruit that gains a nice earthy tone on the finish. 91pts

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.

lovely pale rose to pink color – lots of cherry candy and earth on the nose with slight cheesiness, sweet licorice and oaky spice – nice and fresh in the mouth, very cherried in a lush style, somewhat monolithic, drying finish, remains very cherry/vanillia and turns progressively more drying, nice though
