This is the best edition of Ginestrino I have tasted. It is also one of the best Langhe Nebbiolos in recent memory. I recommend you buy the 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo Ginestrino not by the bottle but by the case load. Conterno Fantino does not make a so-called base or village Barolo. Instead, it offers this wine as if it were a Barolo. It is released early (with 40,000 bottles this year) to showcase the delicious primary fruit. The bouquet offers beautiful layering of wild berry, spice, cola, anise seed and rose hip. The tannins are silky and smooth.
