Winemaking

The 2014 Barolo from Elio Grasso is a cuvée from the large single vineyards of "Casa Matè" and "Chiniera", which were not bottled in 2014 due to the poor harvest. Following selective manual harvest, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 12-16 days. Ageing takes place for 24 months in large Slovenian oak barrels. Following this, the wine is aged in the bottle for 8-10 months.

Our tasting note

This Barolo shines a lively garnet red in the glass. Accessible, open nose with aromas of ripe sweet cherries, mint, a hint of sweet and bitter almonds and a delicate fragrance of violets in the background. It impresses on the palate with clear, juicy fruit and a fine sweet core, once again dominated by a distinct cherry aroma and the fine aroma of violets. Long-lasting finish with a mildly salty minerality.

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 Gian-Luca 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 Matè", 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.
