1996 Conterno Fantino Sori Ginestra Barolo
and, ... how was it? I've been looking at some older Conterno Fantino and wonder if they are a good buy.
Dark colour. Great nose of dark fruit, licorice, and slight smokey hints. Great fruit on the palate and then it was totally flat. No acidity or structure to back-up the fruit. This bottle was open for 6+ hours without decanting.
Based on this bottle, not my style as I found it out of balance.
