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.

Bright red. Enticing perfume of raspberry, red cherry, rose petal and white truffle. Pure, spicy and floral; on the lean side but with lovely cut and classic dryness. Should make a flexible wine at the dinner table. Grasso does a short fermentation and focuses on getting primary aromas in his nebbiolo bottling.
