Elio Grasso Nebbiolo Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Maté 1997

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy fruit tones on the nose are freshened by slightly herbal floral notes and some embedded mineral nuances 2+ With good acidity yet drying tannins this comes off as a bit clumsy 2 Quite tannic at this point, closed but the subtle dried strawberry fruit may not have the power to deal with these tannins 2 Finish is short and consistent with the midpalate 2

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.
