Brand Conterno-Fantino
Deep garnet red with ruby highlights, with a rich, fruity and persistent bouquet of rose petals, brushwood and blackberries and a full-bodied, luscious, and austere palate. A wonderful accompaniment to meat, pasta and aged cheese. A nice complement to rabbit stewed in red wine.

You'll find broader strokes and more heft in the 2015 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra than in the other crus from Conterno Fantino, along with extra levels of power and dimension. This vintage boasts lots of fiber and intensity, with dark fruit contrasting against spice, tar and tobacco. The wine shows more structure at the back, too, one of the important differences that makes this wine well suited to longer cellar aging. This is simply a complete Barolo with gorgeous texture, so fine and detailed, and it will hold up for years to come.

Ample sweet plum, blackberry, black cherry, licorice, tar and underbrush aromas and flavors are accented by vanilla and toasty oak in this lively Barolo. Pure, verging on racy, with a light sinewy feel to the tannins. Complex, fresh and long. Best from 2024 through 2043.

The 2015 Barolo Sorì Ginestra shows why this site is so highly regarded. Soaring aromatics make a strong opening statement. Spice, menthol, licorice, macerated cherry, blood orange, leather and pine all fill out the wine's ample frame. Powerful, deep and layered, the Sorì Ginestra is a super-classic Conterno-Fantino Barolo. In this vintage, the tannins are especially polished, something that has not always been the case with young Sorìs.
