Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2018
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Dark garnet red. Elegant, round nose with lingering fruity, spicy, balsamic and mineral undertones. Strong, warm body, with powerful aromas and well-balanced flavours. Long, intense finish. Lends itself to lengthy ageing, with a cellar life even extending to over fifteen years. Pair with roast veal, rump steak cooked in Barolo wine, mature cheeses.
A sleek style, featuring cherry, plum, iron, coffee ground and tobacco flavors allied to a dense matrix of tannins. Turns even more tense and sinewy on the finish, where earth and tobacco accents echo. Best from 2025 through 2043. 1,250 cases made, 375 cases imported.
