ELIO GRASSO Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini 2017

Elio Grasso’s Langhe Nebbiolo is a contemporary expression of Nebbiolo designed to create a more approachable style for drinking over the first 5 years of its life. The fruit comes from a south-facing 1.2 ha plot of slightly younger vines within the Gavarini vineyard, 350-380 meters above sea level, on relatively loose-packed, calcareous soil. Driven by rigorous attention to detail in the vineyard and picking at optimum phenolic maturity, the Grasso style is underscored by immaculate winemaking. The Langhe Nebbiolo is fermented in stainless steel and typically spends 20 days on skins, followed by 6-8 months maturation in stainless steel tanks. Micro-oxygenation is used judiciously for a softer mouthfeel.

Winery ELIO GRASSO

Elio Grasso is a wine producer situated in Monforte d’Alba in the heart of Piedmont. As a young man, Elio was always a great admirer of the Conterno estate. So in 1979 when he gave up his banking job in Turin to move to the family property in Monforte d’Alba, Aldo Conterno helped him get started. The Grasso family owns vineyards in some of the best parts of the region, some of which have been family owned and worked for more than a century. All wines are made from estate owned grapes including Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera and more recently Chardonnay. Grasso produces three Barolo vineyard selections: Gavarini Vigna Chiniera, Ginestra Vigna Casa Maté and Rüncot. Over the years Elio’s style has evolved to a position somewhere between the classic and modernist expressions of Barolo. Langhe Nebbiolo, Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba and Langhe Chardonnay are also produced.
