2014 Barolo, Elio Grasso, Piedmont

In 2014 Gianluca decided to blend his two single vineyard sites together, preferring the results of the blend to the individual wines. We didn't taste the original wines, but it's absolutely certain that the blend has worked brilliantly. Cool and suave, with notes of crushed herbs, fresh flowers and morello cherries, it's a wine that's all about elegance and finesse. A clear demonstration of Gianluca's Monforte terroir, it's a wine that you'll want to have in your cellar. He really is a Barolo superstar. This wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.

TASTING NOTES

In 2014, Gianluca Grasso opted to bottle one Barolo that is a blend of juice from Gavarini and Chiniera. Grasso's 2014 Barolo is a beautiful wine that captures the personality of the vintage. Lithe, perfumed and aromatic, the 2014 exudes class from start to finish. The flavors are wonderfully bright and vibrant, with plenty of red fruit and expressive floral and overtones. The 2014 is a pretty, feminine wine that may very well surprise down the road.
