Winemaker Notes

The Nebbiolo “Ginestrino” is aged for ten months in 2nd year French oak barriques. Very bright scarlet with garnet highlights. Appealing, lingering bouquet with hints of dog-roses and peach stones. Nice and round on the mouth, with perfectly balanced varietal tannins.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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

Conterno Fantino Mattia Vezzola Winery Image
This classic Langhe winery, founded in 1982, testifies to the talent and vision of Claudio Conterno and his friend and partner, Guido Fantino, who styles the wines. French oak barriques and new wood marry Piedmont’s own, blockbuster structure, opulent, tightly knit texture, magnificent tannins and rich, layered flavors. Today, the property comprises 57 acres under vine. Soil composition is sand, silt, clay; gradient of slopes 20-35%, and vine age is 15-40 years. Conterno Fantino's initial nucleus is cru Ginestra: a historical one for Barolo, documented as far back as the 1800s. In 1989, Guido and Claudio acquired terrain from the nearby area of Bricco Bastia, within the commune of Monforte d'Alba, where they eventually built a state-of-the-art new winery inaugurated in 1994. This location is scenically set, dominating the most ancient section of Monforte and overlooked by the majestic sweep of the Alps. Conterno Fantino exclusively employs geothermal energy: less CO2, more respect for the environment.

Red Wine

Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
