Silvio Grasso Silvio Grasso Barolo 2014 2014
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
100% Nebbiolo grown in calcareous clay soils in La Morra. Fermentation lasts 10 days in stainless steel. The wine is then aged in 30-40% new French oak barriques for 24 months, followed by 12 months in bottle before release.
Garnet red color. Very intense, elegant and fruity nose. On the palate, this Barolo is dry, austere, warm, tannic, fresh and intense -- showing good persistence.
Pairs well with red meat, cheese and game.
Eucalyptus, menthol and tar are the main flavors here, showing hints of cherry and licorice. Rich and supple, with firm tannins arriving on the finish. A savory style. Best from 2020 through 2033. 900 cases made.
Aromas of game, toasted oak and powdered sage lift out of the glass. The firm palate offers black-currant jam, licorice and mocha alongside assertive, tightly knit tannins that give it a grippy finish. Drink after 2023.
Adult Signature is required for every shipment.
