Description

Ginestra is a huge vineyard of over 100 hectares, but the Conternos have some of the best bits, comprising poorer grey soils where grapes ripen later than in the rest of the commune. This is another transparent, linear wine, perfumed and fresh, with much more depth and texture than the regular Barolo. The red fruit is cool and crunchy, with notes of smoke and rose petals, and there is a clear mineral spine, very smooth elegant tannins and a long fruity finish.
