Elio Grasso "Dei Grassi" Dolcetto d'Alba 2012
"Elio Grasso remains the most under-appreciated of Piedmont’s top growers. Make no mistake about it, these wines can easily hold their own with the best from the region. When one factors in price, these are easily some of the finest ageworthy wines on the planet." -Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media.
Editorial Reviews for Elio Grasso "Dei Grassi" Dolcetto d'Alba
According to Gianluca Grasso “Lighter styled because of the cooler vintage but it's just the way I like it”. Fresh and tart on the nose with a little earthy and floral spice, and nice green peppercorn note. Decidedly medium light bodied in the mouth, fresh and immediately delicious, this is lovely with lightly earthy red fruit, soft tannins, fine cleansing acidity. Uncomplicated yet gulpable and absolutely full of lightly plummy and red cherry fruits and a soft green herbal edge, this is irresistible. 88pts
