Elio Grasso Barolo Roncot Riserva 2000

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite fruity at first, the nose here gains some assertive minty notes with air as well as nuanced tar, earth, medicinal herb, and mushroom notes all topped with sweet toasted spice and vanilla notes. Big and powerful on entry, this is packed with sweet raspberry and strawberry fruit all wrapped in a chewy, broad mid-palate. The fruit offers admirable clarity and depth, though there is a touch of heat and some wood tannin does pop on the back end, but it doesn't interfere with the long, spicy and red fruited finish that holds its wood spice quite nicely. A bit polished and modern in that sense, this remains quite authoritatively Barolo. 91 points
