Paolo Conterno Ginestra Barolo 2013 is one of the most unique Barolo's coming out of Piedmont. Coming off of a 10 hectare vineyard where Nebbiolo has been grown since the late 1800s. The vineyards are quite special with some aspects reaching up to 38%.
Let us explain a little more detail about this Barolo. The Ginestra vineyard sits about 350m above sea level with slopes around the 30% gradient, making this a very hands on management. The vines age ranges between 30-35 years old, and the process of making the wines starts with a hand harvest.
The grapes are crushed and destemmed and macerated for 20 days. The fermented juice is racked a few times before being matured in old oak casks. It's then matured further in bottle to help soften and develop.
Garnet hue, spiced dried fruit and floral tones on the nose, super complex. The palate is dry, layered and concentrated. Red berries and juicy tannin and a warm spice on length.
