Barolo Ginestra Vigna del Gris is another terrific wine from Conterno-Fantino. Crushed flowers, cedar, pipe tobacco, mint, dried flowers and worn-in leather give the 2019 striking aromatic presence. Here, too, Fabio Conterno has done a terrific job in taming the Monforte tannins. The Gris never has the completeness of the other crus, but in 2019 it is positively striking. I would drink this ahead of the other 2019s.
Vineyard faces towards Cascina Francia. Eastern exposition and elevation of 304 m.
Lustrous, youthful ruby. Beautiful, firm, perfumed nose with a savoury, spicy note from the oak. Succulent, fresh, intense raspberry fruit with a whisper of oak. Fine tannins that grow in stature on the finish. Succulent fruit finish with tannic bite. (WS)
