External Reviews for Conterno Fantino Barolo Vigna del Gris
Interesting aromas of dried flowers with some stems and dark fruits. Full-bodied with semi-chewy tannins and a medium finish. A little tight now but solid. Better after 2014. James Suckling.
A behemoth of a nose, concentrated, complex and commanding. Full and structured, well rounded with black fruit, liquorice and mocha flavours.Conterno Fantino stands at the summit of 21st century Barolo, both literally and figuratively. From its stunning winery atop the Monforte d Alba hill, this alliance of the Fantino and Conterno families produces a range of wines that are both unmistakably modern in approach, and also utterly respectful of the region s wine-growing heritage.Grapes: 100% NebbioloRegion: Italy / Piemonte / Monteforte d AlbaMaker: Fabio FantinoNotes: A behemoth of a nose, concentrated, complex and commanding.
