2010 Conterno Fantino "Vigna del Gris" Barolo

SKU #1168643 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Barolo Vigna del Gris is beautiful, layered and expressive. Sweet tobacco, mint, licorice, crushed flowers and plums meld together in a supple, gracious wine for the year. Sweet rose petals and mint add an attractive upper register of trademark aromatics and perfume as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2010 remains dense and compact, but it is impossible to miss that the tannins here are more refined than has typically been the case with the Gris in the past, which is probably the result of vines getting older. The 2010 needs time to unwind, but it is quite pretty and full of potential. Conterno-Fantino gave the 2010 a year in 100% new French oak, followed by a year in a combination of equal parts barrique and cask. Inner quote mark (1/2014)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Red-ruby. Black cherry, menthol and a whiff of candied dark berries on the nose. The palate offers a captivating combination of lush, fine-grained texture and energy, with the black fruit and sweet oak flavors already displaying terrific definition. Finishes juicy and very long, with brisk acidity and smooth tannins that gain power with air. Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There’s a hard outer shell to this monolithic red, with an inner core of sweet cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, mint, flowers and mineral. Layered and persistent, with fine intensity marking the long aftertaste. Shows excellent balance and potential. Best from 2018 through 2036.B.S Inner quote mark (10/2014)
