Subtle and fascinating, with complex aromas of spice, leather, cedar and berry. Full-bodied, with super, well-integrated, silky tannins that show layers. Extremely caressing and fine. Best after 2005.
The 1997 Barolo Le Gramolere possesses a medium ruby color with pink at the edge. An elegant, lighter-styled 1997 with spicy tobacco/herbaceous notes intermixed with cranberries, cherries, and red currants, this vibrant wine should;d be drunk over its first 10-12 years of life.
Another sweet, seductive, round, evolved, and fragrant 1993 Barolo, Manzone's Le Gramolere offers dazzling ripeness, rich, sweet, spicy, cherry, smoky fruit, medium to full body, an appealing lushness and generosity to its personality, and a sweet, easy-going, elegant finish. This disarmingly tasty wine is typical of how seductive and forward so many 1993 Barolos have turned out.
The 1997 Barolo La Gramolere is stylish and complex, with subdued oak and vibrant, expressive, expansive sweet cherry fruit oozing from both the aromas and flavors. The wine is structured, with a sweet mid-palate and finish. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.
Loads of spices, cinnamon and cloves on the nose follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Beauty. Balanced. Manzone always makes harmonious wine. Best after 2009.
Very floral, with berry, cherry character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Hard now but will reward the patient. Best after 2004.
Gorgeous aromas of ripe fruit, spices and light cedar. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. This is balanced and wonderfully made, with great concentration. Great value too. Best after 2007.
Always a sell out- especially the 04 vintage. Here is what Parker had to say- Wine Advocate # 174 Dec 2007 Antonio Galloni 94 Drink: 2012 - 2024 Manzones 2004 Barolo Le Gramolere reveals gorgeous notes of candied cherries, spices and menthol in an elegant, sweet expression of this vineyard. It offers greater freshness than the Castelletto, with notable vibrancy to its generous fruit. The finish is delicate and long, as ethereal aromas linger in the empty glass. The Gramolere was aged predominantly in 500 liter barrels with 15-20% of the juice seeing larger 20-hectoliter barrels. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this small, artisanal producer. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. This is a very strong set of releases from Giovanni Manzone. I have always found an element of rusticity here, but the 2004s may well signal a move towards more elegant, refined Barolos.
