Elio Grasso Nebbiolo Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Maté 1999

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The light nose has a wispy elegance to the smoky asphalt and anise tinged nose that features classic cherries in alcohol layered with subtle leafy herbs 3 Soft and gentle in the mouth with good acidity and ripe tannins if a touch relaxed 2+ Ever so slightly jammy in the mouth but with excellent purity of slightly candied strawberry/red cherry fruit that reveals just a touch of limestony minerality 3 Finishes with solid length to the red fruits that offer up nuanced notes of light mineral tones and lovely middle-eastern spice and tea notes 3

The nose showed ripe cherry up front, which turned more to plum, rose and potpourri, a hint of mushroom and wet fall leaves. On the palate it was soft like silk, feeling weighty yet somehow light on it's feet. Dark red fruit, menthol and a core of minerals saturated the palate and stayed through the long finish. A balanced dose of fine grained tannin remained, which promised years of development yet still allowed this early glimpse to be incredibly enjoyable.
