Elio Grasso, Piedmont

*New Releases due March 2020

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."

"Gianluca Grasso is among the very best of Piedmont producers who deftly bridge modern and traditional styles with stylish, powerful wines that also age beautifully. Grasso's 2015 Barolos are wonderfully nuanced, polished wines that capture everything the vintage had to offer. Grasso gave his 2015s 25-30 days of fermentation, followed by another 10 days or so of submerged cap fermentation. The malos were done in steel and the wine saw about two and a half years of cask prior to being bottled."
— Antonio Galloni, February 2019

While the Barolo's often command the headlines at this great estate - the Grasso family also produce the mind-blowing 'Mini-Barolo' uber-value Gavarini Langhe Nebbiolo, and the impressively silky & super-charged Barbera - two of the finest wines you will taste from the region. I urge all lovers of Piedmont wines to taste through the range - from Barolo to Barbera - as these wines represent some of the greatest values to be had in our Italian portfolio.
— David Haglund, Fine Wine Manager
