Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
93 VM / 92 RP
Saturated dark red. Vibrant nose melds cherry, dried rose, smoke, camphor, tobacco and nutty oak. A step up in brightness and intensity; dense, concentrated and sharply delineated. Long, sweet and classy on the finish, with superb extract to support its ripe tannins. This is already delicious, but has the balance and material for a long life in bottle. - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
Very good is the compelling 1998 Barolo Sori Ginestra. A dense, full-bodied, super-extracted, complex, multilayered Barolo, it exhibits aromas and flavors of tar, camphor, black cherry liqueur, smoke, minerals, and subtle new oak. Full and velvety-textured, with a 40-second finish, this large-scaled yet immensely elegant wine will drink beautifully between 2004-2018. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
