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.
87 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
(done entirely in stainless steel): Bright red-ruby. Fresh cherry perfume complemented by flowers, licorice and mint; smells ripe but quickly shut down in the glass. Broad and quite dry, with a slightly reduced quality to the flavors of medicinal black cherry and licorice. In a classic juicy style but a bit skinny: I wanted more sweetness.
