About Elio Grasso
Rather than turning out powerful, unyielding wines from his beautiful estate in the hills behind Monforte, Elio Grasso strives for harmonious and balanced bottlings. Grasso and his family offer three complex single-vineyard Barolosr. The Vigna Chiniera and the Case Maté are made in a more traditional style, while the powerful Runcot is aged for 30 months in all new barriques. Also look for their Nebbiolo from the Langhe and the Dolcetto d'Alba.
89 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2007
($32; aged in 50% new and 50% once-used barriques and bottled in August) Good deep red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant, plum, milk chocolate and minerals. Lush, fat and fine-grained, with a lovely restrained sweetness and a pliant mouth feel. Intriguing mineral and floral nuances complement the red fruit and mellow oak components. Finishes with very smooth tannins. A very good showing.
