Spicy nose with deep earth, leather, tar and cherries in alcohol aromas. This is rather more classic than the Chiniera with incipient fungi and first floor aromas. Rich and round with riper tannins than the Chiniera, this has a lovely core of fruit, lightly spicy yet very aromatic in the mouth with tar, soil, and herb nuances framing the bitter cherry fruits. Really finely structured and balanced with excellent length, This has some palate staining depth of flavor and while it is a touch on the rich, soft side reflecting the vintage it is really finely crafted. 93pts

Good medium red. Deep brooding nose offers currant cherry and spices. Plush broad and sweet on the palate but less open to inspection today than the Gavarini. With aeration flavors of redcurrant tobacco and mocha emerged. Big but nicely distributed tannins arrive late giving the finish excellent length. The Grassos do about 25 days of total maceration including two weeks with a submerged cap but keep the fermentation temperature below 28 degrees C (and usually no higher than 26) in

This shows a beautiful depth of fruit with fine tannins. There are hints of hazelnut character as well. Full and delicious with a long long finish. The clay soil gives more structure and richness to this wine than Gavarini Vigna Chiniera. Better in 2015. James Suckling.

Grassos 2009 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Math is a bit richer deeper and darker than the Gavarini but the differences between the wines arent as marked as they usually are. That is the essence 2009. Dark cherries plums menthol and spices flesh out on the broad richly textured finish. As good as this is and the Ginestra is quite good in 2009 the expression of site is more muted than is typically the case. Antonio Galloni.

The Grassos do about 25 days of total maceration including two weeks with a submerged cap but keep the fermentation temperature below 28 degrees C (and usually no higher than 26) in order to make more elegant wines.
