Albino Rocca & Elio Grasso

"The Rocca family continues to make all the right decisions to ensure the highest quality possible. It seems every year brings with it a new investment. The cellar is now temperature and humidity controlled. While that may not seem like a big deal, retrofitting an old cellar with modern equipment is neither easy nor inexpensive. The Roccas have made the investments, which is one of the reasons their wines continue to improve while those of some of their neighbors don't. The 2013 Barbarescos are all very pretty. The Nebbiolo harvest took place between October 6 and 16, which is late by today's standards. In recent years the Roccas have brought a greater emphasis on energy, longer macerations and more neutral oak influence."
— Antonio Galloni, October 2016

Elio Grasso and his son Gianluca have created one of the finest vineyards and wineries in the Langhe today. The energy shared by this dynamic father and son team demonstrates that no ambition is too far stretched or lofty - as long as there is a will for hard work. Investments made over the last decade include a state-of-the-art winery complete with an underground cellar, buried 45 meters below the vineyards. Recently, Gianluca says his passion has turned to vineyard work: "The point is not being the greatest wine producer. It is to be the greatest producer of grapes."

Grasso is among the producers who deftly bridge modern and traditional styles with stylish, powerful wines that also age beautifully. His latest releases are simply terrific.."
