2010 Barolo - great vintage....

2010 Conterno Fantino Barolo Sori Ginestra...$95.99
Conterno-Fantino's flagship 2010 Barolo Sorì Ginestra wraps around the palate with gorgeous texture. Pine, menthol, tobacco and savory herbs flesh out in a rich, full-bodied Barolo endowed with stunning depth and volume. Not surprisingly, the 2010 is the tightest and least expressive of these Barolos today. The 2010 spent a year in 100% new French oak barrels and a second year in a combination of French oak and larger casks.
Rated 94+/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
