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. – Description from Dragac

  • Elio Grasso Barbera d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    16 months plus in barrique,50% newLots of wood on the nose, sweet and toasty with spicy notes concealing but not totally covering the core of black cherry skin, black plum fruit. This is silky, elegant and savory in the mouth, with spicy wood up from the superb tense fruit with great minerality and clarity on the backend. The wood tannins are w... Read More

  • Elio Grasso Barolo Gavarini Chiniera 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Delayed harvest a few days to get maximum ripeness , and it was already a late vintage, later than 2008 Smoky with a hint of cocoa on the nose followed by very mineral and herbal aromas, a tight floral note and lots of lingering camphor. Fine grained tannins lend this an austere, lean quality on entry, then this turns faceted in the mouth with g... Read More

  • Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of wood on the nose followed by aromas of clay, silica, spice, lingonberry, and deep camphor and dried herbal note emerge from the glass. Powerful with dark, rich fruit on entry, this has rather soft tannins and bright acids supporting plummy, heavy, earthy flavors that are a bit chunky in the mouth. Dense with tannins, this is quite power... Read More

    Wine review by mark


  • Elio Grasso Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Gavarini Chiniera 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Another wine that shows intense perfumes, with accents of lipstick and earth framing fruit that smells a bit toasty, and sweetly woody and is just a bit heavy and dull at first. Air help this to gain focus and freshens up the core of wild cherry fruit nicely. Cool and compressed on entry, this shows lovely cut in the mouth with deep black cherry... Read More

  • Elio Grasso Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight, mineral aromas gain hints of dried peach, forest floor, camphor and rose petal in the glass. This is a bit spicy in the mouth; medium bodied with lovely balance soft but present acidity and ripe succulent tannins supporting bitter cherry fruit with an earthy, limestone filled backdrop. This shows really fine cut on the palate with tannin... Read More
