2006 Barolo Riserva Rüncot, Elio Grasso, Piedmont

This vineyard is just in from of the Grasso house and seems to combine the Casa Maté opulence and power with the refinement of Chiniera. Intially closed on the nose, which is not a huge surprise considering this has just been bottled after 3.5 years in French oak! With aeration come notes of orange peel, rose petal and wild strawberry, with no particular sign of all that new oak. This is an amazing wine with huge concentration and a tautness of structure which will release its complexities with time.

Elio Grasso

The story of Elio Grasso begins not in the winery, but in the city of Turin, where Elio Grasso was working at a bank when his winemaking grandfather died. From that moment, he returned to his roots – since 1978 working in his eponymous winery on just 18 acres of hills surrounding Monforte d’Alba.
