Rich ripe and generous a huge mouthful of seductive pure fruit balanced and supple right through the finish. Tannins are smoothly integrated into the berry black cherry anise rose petal and violet flavors that seem to fan... Rich ripe and generous a huge mouthful of seductive pure fruit balanced and supple right through the finish. Tannins are smoothly integrated into the berry black cherry anise rose petal and violet flavors that seem to fan out over the palate. Delicious now but has a great future; target 2000 to 2005.

The intense 1990 Barolo Sori Ginestra reveals more tannin structure and body than the 1990 Vigna del Gris.

The intense 1990 Barolo Sori Ginestra reveals more tannin structure and body than the 1990 Vigna del Gris. The elegance of the Vigna del Gris is complemented nicely by the muscular fuller-bodied denser more structured style of the Sori Ginestra. Again my instincts suggest sitting on the Sori Ginestra for 4-5 years and drinking it over the next 15-20 years. As my notes so admirably attest Conterno Frantino is an up and coming Piedmontese star. Both 1989s are terrific wines. Both the 1990 cuvees were closed and more difficult to assess hence the more conservative scores. With more time in the bottle these wines will prove to be as persuasive as the 1989s.
