Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Barolo Ginestra is a territory-driven wine that reflects all of the characteristics associated with the Ginestra cru. It shows elegant mineral and floral aromas backed by an extremely soft and supple tannic quality. This single-vineyard often shows silky tannins that set it apart from much of Monforte d'Alba's more structured wines. Barolo Ginestra also boasts a deep sense of energy and tension that should hold forth over the course of time. Drink: 2017-2030.
