    Barolo "Vigna Sorì Ginestra" DOCG 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    The flagship of the house with great personality and balance. The bouquet is multi-layered and multi-dimensional with dark violet, balsamic fruits on the one hand, and impressive notes of spices, tar and tobacco on the other. In the glass, the hallmark of the Sori Ginestra is the pronounced, strong backbone of taut tannin and an acidity that leaves nothing to be desired for this cru in terms of structure, perfection and longevity.

    "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." Vinous

    "Rather floral and fruity with candied strawberry and some cherry and stone undertones. It's full and flows across the palate. Creamy, round tannins that are very fine. Friendly and seductive, especially for a 2017." James Suckling

    "An important and cellar-worthy wine, the Conterno Fantino 2017 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra shows ripe fruit and wild berry, with background tones of grill herb, licorice and pressed blue flowers. There are hints of eucalyptus and white pepper that add extra lift and intensity to the bouquet. This is an excellent wine that is very different from the epic 2016 vintage, which scored an extraordinary and well-deserved 98 points; this vintage does not reach that stratospheric level of complexity or depth. When it is ready to open, note that it carries an alcohol content of 15%, so an elaborate truffle meal is probably in order." Robert Parker

    "Pale ruby in hue with a dense colour, full of intriguing leafy lightness with fresh mint, pomegranate and rosehip. This shines for its elegance. A concentration of citrus and darker fruits overlay fresh acidity and solid, muscular tannins which are typical of Ginestra - in my experience this Sorì can be even more austere in the best vintages. Hailed as a warm vintage, the 2017 here expresses an extraordinary freshness with a citrus finish. Outstanding ageing potential." Decanter
