The 2005 Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate displays a darker shade of red fruits than the Chiniera, along with layers of menthol, spices and minerals, all of which come together in the glass beautifully. There is a touch more density here, yet the wine reveals superb grace, with an appealing inner perfume that carries through to the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. Medium red with an amber edge. Less expressive yet nuanced nose hints at brown spices, tobacco, underbrush and dried flowers. Broader, sweeter and denser than the Gavarini, with more depth of flavor and verve. Finishes with dusty but riper tannins. A deeper and more masculine style of Barolo. Grasso noted that this fruit was picked first and was less influenced by rain. ** SOLD OUT **
