Elio Grasso Barolo DOCG 2009
All Grasso wines are produced using estate-grown fruit. The Barolos are produced from three, south-facing vineyards in Monforte: Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate, Gavarini Vigna Chiniera and Runcot. These wines combine structure with elegance, aromatic finesse, solid character and exceptional aging potential.
The vinification procedure for Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè involves alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over. After completing malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in 25-hectolitre barrels of Slavonian oak. Bottling normally takes place in August. The Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè then stays in the binning cellar for 8-10 months before release.
