Elio Grasso Dolcetto d'Alba Dei Grassi 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Harvest period and method: second and third 10 days of September, manual harvest. The vinification procedure for Dolcetto dAlba Dei Grassi involves fermentation for 5-6 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over. After malolactic fermentation, the wine stays in stainless steel until bottling in April-May. We recommend you drink this wine in the first 4-5 years after the vintage to enjoy the fragrance of its aromas and its refreshing drinkability. - Winery ** Only 1 in Stock **

Currently, the Elio Grasso estate has a productive vineyard holding of 14 hectares. The cellar uses only estate-grown grapes from varieties traditionally grown, with excellent results, in the Langhe hill country near Alba. Reflecting the imprint of the vineyard where the fruit was grown in order to give our wines their unique personality is the goal that we - myself, my wife Marina and our son, Gianluca - strive to achieve, with the invaluable assistance of our consultant wine technician, Piero Ballario. We believe that to be acknowledged first as grape farmers, and then as wine producers, is the best way to honour, and continue the labours of, those who have faced before us the challenges that working with nature and her products, like wine, entails. This, and a desire to be true to ourselves, prompts us propose, without presumption, the convictions and conduct shared by all Langhe farming families, characteristics worth preserving and which we believe make the difference.

The 2010 Dolcetto d'Alba dei Grassi is fabulous. Grasso's approach in the vineyard gives the Dolcetto just that extra little bit of dimension and complexity to the fruit, without abandoning a true, varietal expression. The wine shows excellent minera... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Dolcetto wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2010 Grasso, Elio Dolcetto dAlba dei Grassi 750ml
