Conterno Fantino : Barolo Ginestra "Vigna del Gris" 2008

SKU:J1126/08 Piedmont - Barolo - Red - 14.5° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 93

The 2008 Barolo Vigna del Gris is of a dark ruby red, evolving towards garnet. This Barolo 100% nebbiolo has an elegant bouqet, clearly showing red fruit including blackberry. On the palate it's soft, well-balanced, with a beautiful and fine structure which gives both acidity and tannins.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Barolo Vigna del Gris is gorgeous. Layers of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and minerals emerge as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2008 possesses lovely mid-palate pliancy and juiciness, along with beautifully integrated tannins and exceptional polish. Floral notes add lift and brightness. I particularly like its energy. This is an especially open vintage for the Vigna del Gris. I don't see the 2008 making old bones, but it will be delicious over the next 10-12 years, give or take. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
