"Conterno’s 2017 Barolo Ginestra is a wine of gravitas and pure power.  All of the muscle of Ginestra comes through loud and clear.  I am not sure the tannins will every fully soften - this is Ginestra after all - but there is certainly plenty of depth.  To be honest, today I find the Comune bottling to have better balance and more finesse." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Monforte’s crown jewel, ‘Ginestra’ in the hands of Diego Conterno – a native talent who grew up literally in this vineyard – is otherworldly. This single-vineyard Barolo wine, sourced from the ‘Sori’ or 100% south-facing portion of ‘Ginestra,’ is bold, beautiful and seemingly eternal.  Aromas of red and black cherries, bramble fruit, soy, warm spice. Medium-bodied; structured yet savory tannins, long."  

About the Producer: 

"A rising star in the southern reaches of the Barolo zone, Diego Conterno and his son, Stefano, craft elegant Nebbiolo wines in Monforte d’Alba. Diego started his own project in 2000, after two decades at ConternoFantino where he worked alongside his cousins, bringing with him a five-acre plot in ‘Ginestra,’ Monforte’s top cru. Conterno wines “blend the energy and brawn of Monforte with the translucence of traditionally inspired winemaking,” says Antonio Galloni. Rich and potent yet suave in perfume and flavor, Conterno wines are made naturally, fermented on indigenous yeasts and aged in traditional large oak cask (botti). All vines are cared for organically"
