Other Reviews....
The 2019 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sorì Ginestra has an almost botanical feel with lots of wildflowers, iris and garden herb that are layered into dark fruit, spice and rusty metal. The wine does not shy back in term of complexity, and there are many more adjectives that could be applied to the bouquet. In terms of mouthfeel, this elegant Barolo is quite smooth, with enough tannins and acidity to guarantee a long aging trajectory. Production is 11,820 bottles.Drink: 2025-2045.

Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (August 2023)

A great Barolo with an intoxicating nose of dried violet, almost potpourri, with intense cherry and pomegranate aromas. The elegance and intensity of Ginestra stands out here with incredibly well handled, velvety tannins, lifted acidity, and a super-savoury character. The vibrancy on the finish combined with its cleansing, elegant style ensure it's one for the long haul. Drink: 2023-2050.

Aldo Fiordelli - Decanter

Notes of cherries, bergamot, lilac and pine nuts with hints of bark and licorice. Full and wide with compact but ultra-fine tannins that are evenly distributed across the palate. Very long and deep. Refined and opulent. Well-crafted. Try after 2027.
