2016 Conterno Fantino "Sorì Ginestra" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1475478 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Of these new Baroli from Conterno Fantino, the 2016 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra shows the most underlying power, linearity and determination. While the other wines are a little softer and richer, especially on the mid-palate, this wine is all muscle and brawn. With its 15% alcohol content, its abundant bouquet and tight structural presentation, you should count on an extra long drinking window. Wait to pull the cork after the 10-year mark. At this young stage, the bouquet presents layered aromas of red fruit, tar, spice, ferrous earth and candied orange peel. There are hints of mint, eucalyptus and campfire ash. All said and done, this is a 11,700-bottle release of majesty and beauty that will make a proud and important protagonist of any collector's cellar. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very ripe strawberries with hints of dried flowers and incense on the nose. Some lilacs, too. A full-bodied Barolo, yet it’s tight and very well formed with precision and texture. Beautiful combination of ripe fruit and tannins. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra is rich and ample, with all of the textural resonance that this wine always shows. A rush of black cherry, plum, licorice, lavender, spice and menthol builds in a sumptuous, racy Barolo loaded with personality. Aging in oak accentuates the wine's body and overall richness. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
