"2018 is often characterized by lighter wines, but the Conternos nonetheless managed to produce a wine with impressive depth and character for their top bottling. Always the darkest and most concentrated wine in the range, even in 2018, the Ginestra displays gorgeous aromas of currant and black cherry along with rose petals and hints of tar, leather, coffee and sage. Broad and focused with youthful fruit and enveloping, firm tannins that will need some time to properly resolve. A classic Barolo that will reward patience."
Mark Jacoby, October 2022

"Monforte d'Alba. Mid ruby with orange tinges. An enticing nose of raspberry, blood orange and iron. Taut lively red-fruit and sweet raspberry palate lined with bags chewy tannins. Gorgeous length but very tannic. (WS)"
