Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
James SucklingAromas of dried flowers, berries and sandalwood follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Better in 2019 but delicious already.
VinousBlack cherry, mocha, plum, licorice and smoke make a strong opening statement in the 2013 Barolo Ginestra. Bold and explosive in the glass, the 2013 offers plenty of depth and power but is also marked by oak, and starting to show signs of faint oxidation. It will drink well for at least a handful of years, but does not look like a long term keeper. - Antonio Galloni
