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 07 Dolcetto d’Alba Dei Grassi is a gorgeous and refined dolcetto, with plenty of dark fruit and licorice aromas. I guess the words precision and drinkability comes to mind when trying to best describe this wine. Juicy (dark berry type), structured, and leaving you wanting another sip. http://bit.ly/rfJLoL

It's particularly dark garnet, almost purple, in the glass. While cherry is present on the nose and palate, it's a much blacker, sweeter tone, reminding a bit of Häagen-Dazs' classic cherry vanilla ice cream. Same, too, of the tobacco: less dried smoking tobacco, more sweet cherry chewing or pipe tobacco. This is ripe wine.
