Grasso E. Barolo Vigna Casa Mate 1990

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deeply aromatic and layered with fudge tones over cherry jam. There are some green coffee notes here with menthol and warm licorice top notes all adding complexity. On the palate this is fresh and crisp with rich, bright cherry fruit and inner mouth perfumes of licorice, mint and some sweet floral tones. The finish is long and very well integrated, though it begins to show the softness of this wine as it sort of just peters out. 93pts

Meaty, spicy fruit nose. Good fresh acidity, bright ripe cherry and a bit of medicine.

Aromas of varying black fruits, eucalyptus notes, some menthol and black licorice. The palate is tannic and powerful filled with dark fruits and chocolate, meaty and complex

Yellowish nose - lots of soy sauce. Tart at first, but gives way to a long dry leathery finish.

Iodine, tar and leather on the nose. Nice plums in there as well. Very good acidity - crisp and mineral. Dense black cherry fruits on the mid palate, before a tight iodine laced finish. Sweet meatiness right on the back of the palate.
