Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
95 WS / 93 AG
Though intense, this is elegant and vibrant, exhibiting pure cherry, raspberry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Its tannins are very well-integrated. The lingering aftertaste evokes coffee and mineral. Best from 2013 through 2032. 300 cases imported. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
The 2006 Barolo Ginestra shows wonderful thrust in a bright, vibrant expression of this site. Flowers, menthol, red fruits and spices sit on a wiry, energetic frame as this beautifully balanced Barolo opens up in the glass. The 2006 Ginestra seems to be holding quite a bit of its potential in check, but it is already highly appealing, even if the tannins naturally require a few years in bottle to soften.
