Organoleptic Analysis: The Barolo Ginestra wine is of an intense grenade.
The nose is dynamic and it recalls red fruits with some hints of cinchona, aromatic sweet and harmonic sensations. The mouthfeel of the Ginestra is broad, the balsamic note enriches the taste. The generous tannin is balanced by the acidity and by a general richness that ma kes the flavour really pleasant. A great Barolo from one of the best vineyards of Monforte.
