Elio Grasso Nebbiolo Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Maté 2000

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very matte on the nose with strong rose and tar notes over slightly pruny fruit that has a torrefied/roast coffee/cocoa edge 2 A bit ponderous with a dull attack though nice quality to the tannins and acids if a bit heavy 2 The palate is powerful with roasted herb, menthol and fudgy tones to the dark pruny fruit 2 Finishes with admirable length that balances clean red fruits and nice chinato herbs 3

Bright, deep red. Pungent red berries and minerals on the vibrant nose. Dense, thick and sweet, but with brisk acids giving lift to the red berry and mineral flavors. A vibrant 2000 Barolo, if not quite as floral or complex as the Casa Maté.

A lovely mixture of strawberries and cherries with hints of raspberries. Almost tropical. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a gorgeous ripe fruit finish. Very velvety. Goes on and on. Best after 2008.

The 2000 Gavarini Vigna Chinera, from a vineyard with somewhat sandy soil, is elegant and fragrant with notes of roses, licorice and spice. Medium-bodied and soft, but with a firm tannic underpinning, it should last until 2015.
