    Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra 2006 (12x75cl)

    Jancis Robinson (18)

    Very dark blackish brown. Strange sweet, waxy aromas. Very dry finish. Quite hard work! This needs a LOT of time and is still very tarry on the end though I am inclined to believe it will all come right in the end. Massively packed with flavour. And the tannins are well managed. Bonfire aromas. Great energy.

    2007

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra 2007 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2007 Barolo Sorì Ginestra comes across as less aromatically intriguing and more fruit-driven than is typicall the case. The wine's full-bodied, powerful personality is on full display, but the 2007 doesn't seem to have the level of nuance and detail that it often does. Still, the 2007 is a hugely enjoyable Barolo that impresses for its textural richness and full-throttle personality.

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra 2008 (12x75cl)

    Vinous (95)

    The 2008 Barolo Sorì Ginestra is the most complete of these 2008s. An exotic mélange of plums, black cherries, menthol, spices and licorice takes shape in the glass. The 2008 Ginestra impresses for its textural depth, richness and aromatic nuance. Layers of fruit build towards the sweeping finish in this multi-dimensional, textured Barolo. Ginestra is one of the great sites in Barolo. The 2008 captures all of the magic. This is the most refined, polished young Sori Ginestra I have ever tasted.

    Wine Advocate (95)

    Last in the lineup is the 2009 Barolo Sori Ginestra that incorporates many of the high points of the two wines described above. You get the toasted spiciness of the Barolo Vigna del Gris as well as the Nebbiolo brightness of the Barolo Mosconi. In between those two poles are shades of licorice, spice, balsam notes, crushed granite and cedar. The wine is stacked tall, one plush layer on top of the next and the palate is rewarded with a lovely quality of tannin that is firm and unyielding but also polished and tight at the same time. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra 2012 (12x75cl)

    Vinous (93+)

    The 2012 Barolo Sorì Ginestra is one of the more understated wines I have tasted here in some time. Silky, pliant and expressive, the 2012 boasts considerable aromatic presence to match its overall weight and intensity on the palate. A host of lavender, smoke, mint, plum, spice and savory herb overtones add the closing shades of nuance.

    Wine Advocate (96)

    The 2013 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra shows a whole other level of fiber and textural richness. This is a stunning wine from thicker soils that deliver more structure, firmness and overall depth. With that superiore richness, the wine is also endowed with balanced acidity, plump primary fruit and an elegant touch of balsam or menthol herb on the finish. This drives the finish forward for a few long and glorious minutes. Dig deeper still, and you find a sweet note of chocolate hazelnut.

    2014

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra 2014 (12x75cl)

    Vinous (95)

    The 2014 Barolo Sorì Ginestra is striking. Ample, creamy and voluptuous, it exudes class from the very first taste. Like all of these wines, the 2014 Sori has a sweetness of tannin that is impossible to miss. Lavender, blueberry jam, spice and menthol build into the sumptuous, enveloping finish. The 2014 is a real stunner. That's all there is to it.

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (94)

    The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra is another gorgeous, expressive wine in this range. Broad and ample, the 2017 captures all of the personality of this site. Dark-fleshed fruit, spice, menthol, licorice, espresso, dried flowers and pine infuse the 2017 with myriad layers of dimension. There is plenty of Ginestra energy and tannin, so a few years of cellaring is a must.

    Inc. VAT: £472.07
    2005

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Vigna Del Gris 2005 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (88)

    The 2005 Barolo Vigna del Gris is just beginning to enter the plateau of its maturity. Smoke, tobacco, game and licorice take on dark shades of expression. The Gris is often a lighter, aromatic Barolo, but the 2005 has developed into more of a powerful, burly wine, likely the result of underripe tannin and too much new oak tannin. While tempting to think the 2005 might need more time, it is in my view a wine that will never come into balance. Still, it should hang on for another decade or so.

    2007

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Vigna Del Gris 2007 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2007 Barolo Vigna del Gris is unsually plump and juicy in this vintage. Dark red fruit, flowers, menthol and spices emerge from this perfumed, feminine Barolo. In 2007 the Gris has a touch more depth, which serves to balance the French oak very nicely. The 2007 is one of the finest vintages of this wine I recall tasting.

    Conterno Fantino Barolo Vigna Del Gris 2016 (1x150cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2016 Barolo Ginestra Vigna del Gris offers a striking balance of density and the more floral, high-toned notes that are so typical of this wine. Dried flowers, rose petal, mint, sweet spice and cedar are all nicely lifted. Beams of incisive tannin give the wine its vibrant, energetic feel. I would drink it first among these four wines.
