TASTING NOTES

"Saturated red-ruby color. Great purity of fruit on the nose, which combines raspberry, minerals, rose petal, truffle and vanilla; this shut down quickly with air. Dense, sappy and primary, with superb intensity and lift in the middle palate. Floral and minty nuances contribute to the impression of youthful vibrancy. The sappy, spicy, rising finish boasts outstanding length, great floral lift and noble tannins. A real Barolo knockout. Sure it's young and destined to be long-lived, but this is balanced from the outset." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Conterno-Fantino's 2004 Barolo Sorì Ginestra captures the essence of this great vintage. Exotic orange peel, spices, cedar, dark plum and menthol meld together in a big, structured Barolo endowed with considerable depth, power and enough structure to drink well for another decade or perhaps more."

"Beautiful plum, crushed berry and meat aromas lead to a full body, with ripe tannins and a long, powerful finish. Solid and structured, with plenty of ripe fruit to back it up. Best after 2011. 1,190 cases made." Wine Spectator
