Conterno Fantino Barolo Sorì Ginestra 2008
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.
Editorial Reviews for Conterno Fantino Barolo Sorì Ginestra
Perfumed with candied black fruits backed up with plenty of toasty oak. This is simple but assertive with lots of black cherry fruit and lovely herbal accents. Smooth on the palate, and nicely balanced with plenty of tart red berry fruit over well integrated oak spice. The tannins are relatively soft here, allowing this to deliver a nice sweet red cherry flavor on the palate, though the finish is cut short as the tannins reappear. Nicely done all around, sort of archetype middle of the road style Barolo. 91pts

Classy nose of crushed berries, spices, red chillies, and rose petals. Full body, with round and chewy tannins and a milk chocolate, light vanilla and berry aftertaste. Needs time to come together. Stylish. Better in 2015. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Fantino Conterno Barolo Sori Ginestra 1500ml
