Conterno-Fantino Barolo Vigna del Gris 2010

SKU 20737


Very deep color, ruby to garnet, rich, fruity and persistent bouquet of rose petals, brushwood and berries - particularly blackberries; full-bodied, luscious, round and mellow, with an ideal balance of acidity and tannins. Wonderful with meat-based second courses and seasoned cheeses; the producer suggests pairing it with a typical Piedmontese dish called cacciatora chicken.

Wine SpectatorThere's a hard outer shell to this monolithic red, with an inner core of sweet cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, mint, flowers and mineral. Layered and persistent, with fine intensity marking the long aftertaste. Shows excellent balance and potential. Best from 2018 through 2036.

Wine EnthusiastSweet oak, vanilla, plum, violet and mocha aromas lead the nose on this structured wine. The oak influence carries over to the palate together with ripe black cherry, leather and baking spice. The tightly compacted tannins need time to unwind. Drink 2020-2035.
