2012 Elio Grasso "Ginestra Casa Maté" Barolo

SKU #1263022 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark, rich, and enveloping, the 2012 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè wraps around the palate with serious intensity. The flavors are deep and boldly sketched throughout. Plum, black cherries, menthol, licorice and cloves build to the voluptuous, explosive finish. The Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Matè is another wine that is going to require considerable time in bottle, but it is fabulous, even at this very early stage. The Casa Matè is one of the most vivid, dramatic Barolos of the vintage. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté is a thickly layered and structured Nebbiolo that offers more power and muscle compared to the ethereal Barolo Gavarini Chiniera. The bouquet is redolent of tobacco, autumnal leaf, truffle, tar, cola and tobacco. At its core, the wine exhibits a dark, berry-driven personality. The mouthfeel shows firmness and austerity that will help to move the wine gracefully forward to complete its slow evolution. Already at this young stage, this Barolo shows an impressive level of elegance and nuance. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of flowers, strawberry and dried sage come through. Full-bodied, firm and tannic. Chewy tannins yet polished and fine texture. Subtle and flavorful. Inner quote mark (3/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An elegant version, this red boasts macerated cherry, currant and spice flavors, with elements of tobacco, tar and mineral adding depth. Long and stately despite some firm tannins that need to be resolved. Has all the components in the right proportions. Best from 2019 through 2035. (BS, Web Only-2017) Inner quote mark
