This Barbera is derived from 25 year old vines from the "Vigna Martina" vineyard. Fermentation in steel tanks at a controlled temperature and daily pumping is followed by maturation in French oak barriques. The barriques used are 50% old and 50% new. At least 8 months of bottle-ageing follow.

Our tasting note

Lively ruby red. Fruity aromas of black cherry, cranberry and plum in the nose. Infinitely creamy and balanced on the palate. Powerful fruity aromas of sour cherry and a touch of pomegranate dominate, which are harmoniously enhanced by the wooden finish. Concentrated long-lasting finale.

Elio Grasso

The great Barolista and Grand Seigneur Elio Grasso is a strict and self-critical winemaker from Piedmont. He and his warm-hearted wife Marina and capable son Gianluca are able to produce authentic wines with a strong emphasis on the terroir using 18 hectares of prime sites. He has found his own unmistakable signature with his unique Baroli Gavarini Chiniera and Ginestra Casa Maté , which perfectly master the balancing act between robustness and elegance. The Grassos consider the work in the vineyard more important than the work in the cellar and rightly feel more like winegrowers than wine makers.
