Powerful with dark, rich fruit on entry, this has rather soft tannins and bright acids supporting plummy, heavy, earthy flavors that are a bit chunky in the mouth. Dense with tannins, this is quite power... Read More

  • Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate Owc 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Old watermelon, heavy fruit, a bit fudgy, extract, Bovril, meat extract, candied melon peel, loose entry, lacks focus and cut, good soft tannins but no center. Nice soft, slightly medicinal fruit, simple, some nice layered fruit on the backend, shows a bit of elegance, a bit tough on the finish, long but simple. Should improve. Read More
