Wine SpectatorBoasting plum, leather, licorice and spice flavors, this medium-weight red also has plenty of grip. Ripe and dense, delivering refined tannins and a long mineral finish. Best from 2013 through 2030.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Barolo Riserva Ginestra is a rich, layered wine that captures the essence of this great vintage. Dark plums, black cherries, tar, leather and licorice all make an appearance in this kaleidoscopic, multi-dimensional Barolo. Each taste brings with it a new shade of nuance, expressing the complexity and ever changing personality of the very finest Baroli. Only a slight hint of woodiness on the finish keeps the score from going higher. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
