"The 2011 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè sees a fresher quality of fruit compared to the Barolo Gavarini Chiniera. Vines are picked at slightly lower altitudes and harvest starts a few days earlier in this vineyard. The wine reveals an elegant and streamlined bouquet with lively tones of wild berry, spice, white truffle and balsam herb. The complexity here is very enticing indeed. I also appreciated the quality of tannins. They are silky and structured without feeling harsh or astringent." Robert Parker 94 Points
"This is packed with sweet cherry, plum, tobacco, tea and spice flavors. The ample tannins come into play as this unfolds, remaining balanced and refined. Approachable now, but should be better in two to three years. Best from 2018 through 2030. " Wine Spectator 92 Points
