Elio Grasso Barolo “Ginestra Casa Maté” 2017

"The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable" - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Elio Grasso Barolo “Gavarini Chiniera” 2017

"Grasso's 2017 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is fabulous. In fact, the Gavarini is easily one of the wines of the vintage because it retains all of its classic signatures, which is also the sign of a first-class vineyard. Bright and vibrant in the glass, the Gavarini pulses with energy. Crushed red flowers, mint, chalk, white pepper, cinnamon and orange peel give the 2017 a super-classic Nebbiolo profile, as expressed in a relatively high-altitude site. The precision and finesse of the tannins - so hard to find in 2017- elevates the Gavarini into the realm of the sublime." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Elio Grasso Langhe Nebbiolo “Gavarini” 2019

R375.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini offers Grasso fans something delicious and affordable to drink on an every-day basis. Sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, spice and dried cherry open nicely in the glass. This deceptively mid-weight Langhe Nebbiolo packs plenty of punch, especially in its tannins. Even so, I would prefer to drink it on the young side in order to capture the brilliance and energy that are present at the moment." - Antonio Galloni. Vinous

Elio Grasso Dolcetto d’Alba “dei Grassi” 2019

R295.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba dei Grassi is classy, elegant and super-polished. Sweet floral, spice and floral-infused aromatics lead into a core of dark blue fruits in a mid-weight, stylish Dolcetto that is all charm. This is beautifully done." Antonio Galloni, Vinous
