Conterno-Fantino Barolo Vigna del Gris 2010
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
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.
