Elio Grasso Barbera d'Alba "Vigna Martina" 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Generous and silky, with tiny hints of Alba's terroir poking through the rich and fresh berry flavors. Great substitute over many of the lower priced Barolos and Barbarescos in the market.

15 months in barrique, bottled in August 2012 This offers up assertive toasted oak notes paring with the classic slightly herbal and violet driven plummy fruit of Barbera. Lots of wood spice, vanilla and milky notes. Rich and broad in the mouth with a nice blend of Barbera acidity and sweetness from the wood. The oak is much better integrated in the mouth than on the nose, supporting the fine black currant and black cherry fruit. The finish also shows fine integration with judicious wood tannins paired with the rather bright and assertive acidity. Showing really fine depth this remains transparent on the palate with fine black plum fruit, this should age very well, would love to revisit this in two to three years. 91pts
