Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Maté 2012
An elegant version, this red boasts macerated cherry, currant and spice flavors, with elements of tobacco, tar and mineral adding depth. Long and stately despite some firm tannins that need to be resolved. Has all the components in the right proportions. Best from 2019 through 2035. 1,000 cases made.
