"The 2013 Barolo Sorì Ginestra, the estate's flagship Barolo, hits all the classic Ginestra notes. Sweet, balsamic-inflected notes wrap around a core of intense dark blue and purplish fruit. Veins of salinity and tannin give the 2013 much of its personality. The 2013 is a bit restrained today, but it packs a serious punch. This big boy needs time to shed some of its formidable tannin, but it is impressive." (VM)

"Extremely enticing aromas of cherries, plums, almonds and hints of chocolate follow through to a medium to full body, integrated tannins and a savory finish. Needs time to soften. Drink in 2019." (JS)
