"Rather floral and fruity with candied strawberry and some cherry and stone undertones. It’s full and flows across the palate. Creamy, round tannins that are very fine. Friendly and seductive, especially for a 2017. Drink in 2025 and onwards. 95 points." –James Suckling, June 7, 2021.

In addition, the 2017 “Vigna Sori Ginestra” was selected as one of Decanter Magazine’s top Barolo wines of the vintage. They wrote: "Pale ruby in hue with a dense colour, full of intriguing leafy lightness with fresh mint, pomegranate and rosehip. This shines for its elegance. A concentration of citrus and darker fruits overlay fresh acidity and solid, muscular tannins which are typical of Ginestra - in my experience this Sorì can be even more austere in the best vintages. Hailed as a warm vintage, the 2017 here expresses an extraordinary freshness with a citrus finish. Outstanding ageing potential. 97 points." –Aldo Fioredelli, Decanter, June 2021.

From the winemaker-
Deep garnet with ruby hues, with a rich, fruity and persistent bouquet of rose petals, brushwood and berries this wine is full bodied, luscious, and austere on the palate.
