The Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté then stays in the binning cellar for 8-10 months before release.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant version, this red boasts macerated cherry, currant and spice flavors, with elements of tobacco, tar and mineral adding depth. Long and stately despite some firm tannins that need to be resolved. Has all the components in the right proportions. Best from 2019 through 2035. 1,000 cases made.
