Paolo Conterno

Paolo Conterno is situated in the historic Ginestra cru, a plot with calcareous and clay-heavy soil and relatively high altitude producing dark coloured and intensely aromatic wine. The estate owns around 24 acres of vineyard, with vines planted between 980 and 1150 feet above sea level. The vineyards face south and southeast on slopes that give them optimum sun exposure, with the south-facing vines contributing the the Ginestra and Ginestra Riserva. The the south-easterly section of the vineyard goes into the early-drinking elegant Riva del Bric. Originally founded as Casa della Ginestra in 1886, by Paolo Conterno himself, his descendent Giorgio Conterno is the current winemaker here, implementing extended macerations and long-term aging in large French Allier oak casks to produce wine that ages brilliantly long-term.

Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2015 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

The 2015 Barolo Ginestra shows real complexity and depth. It exudes a profound nature in general. Mineral tones lead the clean, fresh entry, followed by more savory notes. This is from Paolo Conterno's home vineyard cru, with vines planted right up to the edges of the winery and the family house. This Barolo is nuanced and multifaceted, and it will stand up to a couple of decades in the cellar.

This is fabulous Barolo with burnt orange, blackberry, meat, earth, and fresh herb. Full-bodied, round and velvety. So flavorful and crazy. Drink now. Why wait? But it will age wonderfully.

Paolo Conterno Ginestra Barolo Riserva 2007 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 2007 Barolo Riserva Ginestra is born in extremely difficult conditions. Fruit is sourced from a hillside plot with impossibly steep inclines and shallow soils (with white tufo and clay) for limited root penetration. These factors help curb the natural vigor of the grapevine and result in high quality fruit. This wine sees a long maceration period (up to 40 days) and almost six years of barrel aging in botte grande. The results are spectacular with rich floral and menthol aromas folded within the wine’s silky texture. This 2007 Riserva feels much younger than it really is. Drink: 2016-2035.

Paolo Conterno Ginestra Barolo Riserva 2010 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

Wow, this is really quite a wine. The 2010 Barolo Riserva Ginestra is guided by three lucky stars: First, it is made by an excellent producer. Second, it comes from an excellent vintage. And third, it comes from an excellent vineyard site. This is a stunning achievement that is teeming with life, intensity, elegance, pedigree and sheer excitement. The bouquet achieves impressive balance with fruit, spice, mineral and tertiary tones that are all played forward with equal intensity. There is a spot of sweetness on the close (with 15% alcohol) that adds to the volume and fullness of the mouthfeel. This wine merits a special place at the back of your cellar where it can age undisturbed for the next decade or two. Only 4,000 bottles exist.

Paolo Conterno Ginestra Barolo Riserva 2011 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 2011 Barolo Ginestra Riserva is every bit as special as the handsome wooden cases in which this collection is sold, along with a newly redesigned label. It's a gorgeous vintage, very full and generous, whose warmer temperatures are reflected in lots of dark, black, rich and ripe penetrating fruit. The Riserva's texture really emerges as unique because it is woven tightly and dense, yet there is ample softness and richness here. It is another Piedmont gem for your cellar.
