1997 Barolo Vigna del Gris

Conterno Fantino

flagNorthern Italy / Italy

Conterno-Fantino's 1997 Barolo Vigne del Gris displays beautifully sweet black fruits in its aromatic profile, and huge, concentrated, full-bodied flavors with enormous muscle, amazing glycerin levels, and exceptional purity. This super-concentrated effort is just beginning to reveal the tell-tale Nebbiolo/Barolo traits of tar, rose petals, and sweet black cherry fruit. It requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should easily last for two decades, although I doubt it will ever close down. This is a super-impressive Barolo. Wine Advocate.June, 2001
