2017 Langhe Nebbiolo 'A Mant' DOC
Usually $75 - Special Offer $65
Like every one of the reds from Paolo Conterno, the Langhe Nebbiolo is sourced directly from the steep exposure of the Ginestra hill. The fruit from the younger plantings makes its way into Langhe Nebbiolo for what is always a great precursor to the next Barolo vintage. In this case, there are two parcels on the South-West facing portion of the calcerous clay of Ginestra.

2016 Barolo 'Riva Del Bric' DOCG
Usually $140 - Special Offer $120
Compared to Paolo Conterno's higher priced Barolo from Ginestra, this wine is made with younger vines (that are 25-years-old on average). The 2016 Barolo Riva del Bric is slightly more open-knit and accessible as a result. The approach is versatile, but this lovely wine captures the sharpness and focus of the vintage. The aromas are linear and bright with wild cherry, crushed flower and blood orange. Earthy and ferrous background notes also appear. Winemaking culminates with 36 months in large oak casks.

2016 Barolo 'Ginestra' DOCG
Usually $240 - Special Offer $205
The Paolo Conterno 2016 Barolo Ginestra is the wine that best represents the personality and work of its creator winemaker and proprietor Giorgio Conterno. Fruit is selected from the part of the Ginestra cru that is planted to 40-year-old vines of Nebbiolo. It is fermented in stainless steel and ages in botte grande for 36 months. You taste concentrated fruit with sweet flavors of blackberry and dried cherry. Delicate aromas of grilled herb licorice and camphor ash slowly come into view. The wine closes with elegant but softly yielding tannins.

2012 Barolo 'Ginestra Riserva' DOCG
Usually $600 - Special Offer $530
Looking really beautiful at the moment. Balance of autumnal undergrowth, perfumed fruit and damsons. Finely tuned tannins, chalky and present and supported by good fresh acidity. This is a complete wine that is in a sweet spot.
