Conterno Fantino, Sorì Ginestra, Barolo 2012

A modern style of Barolo, with a short maceration followed by 24 months maturation in French oak barriques. Cigar box and leather aromas lead into abundant, tight tannins on the palate that frame ripe red fruits, blackberry, cinnamon, savoury spices and vanilla pod. There is a pronounced acidity and a very long, fine finish.
