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

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 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.
