In 2014 Gianluca decided to blend his two single vineyard sites together, preferring the results of the blend to the individual wines. We didn't taste the original wines, but it's absolutely certain that the blend has worked brilliantly. Cool and suave, with notes of crushed herbs, fresh flowers and morello cherries, it's a wine that's all about elegance and finesse. A clear demonstration of Gianluca's Monforte terroir, it's a wine that you'll want to have in your cellar. He really is a Barolo superstar!
Located in the heart of Monforte d’Alba, the Elio Grasso estate stretches over 18 hectares of vineyards, surrounded by forest and meadows. More grape farmers than wine producers, the family works tirelessly to preserve what nature gives them, crafting wines of rare purity and concentration. Their full range is an impressive collection of single expressions of different Langhe terroirs. While approachable in youth, they preserve the impressive longevity of Piedmont wines, making them an unmissable addition to any cellar.
