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.

Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2013

(aged in large Slavonian casks between 7 and 18 years of age):  Bright medium red.  Pretty aromas of redcurrant, rose petal and sexy spices.  Suave and fine-grained, with pliant redcurrant and floral flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity.  Finishes with good structure and lingering notes of plum, redcurrant and mellow oak.  This high-altitude vineyard, featuring 35-year-old vines planted on sand and limestone soil, was harvested first in 2009.

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo based wines made outside the Langhe hills are often lost in the commotion over Barolo and Barbaresco. The provinces of Vercelli and Novarra in the northern reaches of the Piedmont area are home to wines like Carema, Ghemme, and Gattinara. The latter two wines are mostly Nebbiolo, which as traditionally been blended with...
