Elio Grasso 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini

Description

"The Grasso family was forced to farm very carefully in the scorching hot 2017 vintage. Leaves were left on the vines to provide shade for the clusters, and grasses between the vineyard rows were not cut in order to isolate the soils below. The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini sees fruit sourced from the youngest vines in the prized Rüncot site. Declassified grapes from that important cru are directed to this wine instead. This is a structured and richly textured Langhe Nebbiolo with dusty mineral sensations on the close. Gianluca Grasso is particularly proud of the hard work dedicated to this excellent value wine.Robert Parker 90 Points

"The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini is another delicious entry-level wine from Elio Grasso. Crushed flowers and bright red berry fruit are laced together in an inviting, mid-weight Nebbiolo. Classy and polished, the 2017 will drink well for the next few years, maybe more." Antonio Galloni 89 Points
