Elio Grasso – Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè – 2015

Elio Grasso is one of the reference wineries for Barolo wine. Without losing the origins of farmers, Elio Grasso, together with his wife, in the ’70s gave a qualitative change to the wines first of all and to the vineyards, replanting them one by one, selecting each parcel of Nebbiolo, but also focusing on international varieties such as Chardonnay. The winery is located in the Ginestra vineyard, on the eastern side of the commune of Monforte, considered since ancient times the best vineyard of the village, but also one of the most complex because of the soils rich in blue marl.
The winery manages 42 hectares of land between woods and vineyards, and since the 1980’s has decided to give a great importance to the different soil types of the Ginestra cru by vinifying separately two micro subzones: Casa Matè and Gavarini. Moreover the style of the winery, besides the respect for the territory, has always been avant-garde with the almost exclusive use of 225 liter barrels for aging and steel tanks for fermentation. Mythical wines, with great structure, known worldwide. An absolute guarantee.
Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè comes from the southern part of the Ginestra cru, with 40 years old plants and soils rich in limestone with clay veins. The wine was aged in 225 liter wood casks for 24 months and 10 months in bottle. Dry, tannic, dusty wine with herbaceous aromas of leather and licorice. Absolutely complex wine to keep and store.
