This has a very impressive nose with ripe red cherries and plums, as well as abundant notes of sweet spice. The palate delivers a very assertive, plush and fleshy impression with a core of incredibly vibrant fruit that holds super fresh. The tannins are vibrant and the length is very impressive. Try from 2023.

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.- ML

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. -NM
