Elio Grasso Ginestra Casa Maté Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

$74.95

The 2013 Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate is powerful and intense, with huge beams of tannin underpinning the fruit. Black cherry, plum, violet, mint and licorice develop in the glass...all the elements are in the right place... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Definitive Barolo. We've sold 3 different vintages of this in my restaurant since I've been there. This wine is a great pick up for the price and my favorite vintage of the three (11,12,13). Like Cab, if you give it 3-4 years you're off to the races. This wine had heavy dried cherry and some faint orange candy along with cocoa powder. The tannin and acid back and forth is like a dream. Kinda dusty/rusty but fairly smooth. Rose petal on the nose, a little bit of tobacco and I wouldn't say really any truffle on this. More tobacco vs truffle on the earth notes. I would assume this has some decent barrel influence but no barrique and no new oak. Clean minerality, leaving the restaurant writing this and can still taste it
