2013 Conterno Fantino Vigna del Gris Barolo DOCG

Piedmont | Nebbiolo

"The 2013 Barolo Ginestra Vigna del Gris is a beautiful wine that is built for the ages. It will show its best results in ten years or more from now. This is an intriguing expression with impressive depth, concentration, elegance and power. The Vigna del Gris parcel (slightly larger than one hectare) was purchased in 1989, and the first vintage to be released in 1994 was made in the estate's new winery. The vines were first planted in 1969 and are 40 years old, on average. This wine presents firm, structured tannins that make the wine inaccessible now, but that will carry it forward during its aging process." - Wine Advocate, 94 points

"Bright aromas of sliced strawberries and orange peel follow through to a full body, round and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Just some light austerity makes it nice. Drink or hold." - James Suckling, 93 points
