2001 Conterno Fantino "Sorì Ginestra" Barolo

SKU #1016700 99 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure crushed berries and plums, with just a hint of wood and fresh mushroom. Full-bodied and compacted, with loads of rich fruit and big, velvety tannins. Gorgeous wine. Huge concentration, yet balanced. Greatest wine ever from here and the wine of the vintage. *Collectibles, Top 100 Wines of the Year* (JS) Inner quote mark (10/2005)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep medium red. Brooding aromas of red berries, red cherry, minerals and sweet oak. Thick and lush but juicy, with lovely minerality contributing to the impression of grip. Wonderfully pure, sweet red fruit flavors. This, too, builds impressively toward the back and lingers impressively on the aftertaste. The finish features lush, suave tannins that coat the front teeth and incisors. A great 2001 Barolo. (ST) 95+ Inner quote mark (11/2004)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Barolo Sori Ginestra emerges with a bouquet redolent of crushed flowers, tobacco, spices and mint, all of which come together beautifully. The integration of fruit and oak is more harmonious than it is in the Gris. Even with all of the textural richness, the slightly forward aromatics suggest the 2001 is at or close to peak. …. Claudio Conterno and Guido Fantino did a fabulous job with their 2001 Baroli, two wines that have held up quite nicely. The 2001s were aged in 100% new French oak barrels. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Full-bodied and richly textured, this wine nevertheless retains the essence of Nebbiolo in its delicately floral aromas and complex flavors. Cherries, plums and prunes all mingle on the palate, picking up nuances of vanilla and spice. Long and silky on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (3/2006)
