Elio Grasso Langhe Nebbiolo "Gavarini" '16

Elio Grasso shows time and time again respect toward Piedmontese tradition (farmers first, winemakers second), keeping terroir at the forefront, while also challenging themselves as we move from year to year with subtle nuances in each vintage as they continue to cultivate in the winery.

Elio Grasso was originally in the banking business in the city of Turin, but when his winemaking grandfather died, it encouraged him to turn a new leaf and he returned to his roots – since 1978, working on 18 acres of hills surrounding Monforte d’Alba in Barolo.

Gianluca Grasso, and now with assistance from the entire family, has picked up where their ancestors left off, and they began growing grapes and producing wine, once again, with a focus on vineyard-specific selections for their Barolo as well as Barbera and Dolcetto, which is grown is the same highly acclaimed areas. Gianluca is full of energy, who is well spoken with passion and great insight. We find this very reflective in how his wines come across.

The Langhe Nebbiolo is just outstanding and ever approachable. We are very excited to share this wine with you. These Nebbiolo vines are south-facing, on loosely packed limestone soils. The acidity is classic, and the wine is bright with perfectly fresh fruit. This is vinified completely in stainless steel, capturing and preserving its freshness. Bright red cherry, fresh red floral tones, and a hint of mint and spice with dusty minerality.
