The Grasso family has been producing wine since 1927, but Federico Grasso only started bottling in 1980, and has “produced a bevy of sensational efforts over recent vintages” (Wine Advocate). His sophisticated, modern Barolos are particularly notable for avoiding excessive wood aromas; to this end, Grasso prefers to use large barrels rather than barriques for maturation, and uses less than 30% new wood even on his single-vineyard bottlings.
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.
