Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2009 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate come from 35-year-old vines planted at 350 meters above sea level on mixed sand and clay soils. Gianluca says this is always the first vineyard to flower each year. This expression is without a doubt the more masculine of the two, with bold lines filled tight with black fruit, plum, licorice, tobacco and leather. However, the wine is not all muscle and brawn. It, too, offers a beautiful floral note of pressed red rose that lingers long on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Spectator 93 points - A dense red, bordering on muscular, with cherry notes and a rich texture offsetting the tannins. This is balanced, featuring a long finish of fruit and spice. Just needs time. Best from 2016 through 2030. –BS  (Apr 30 2014)

Located outside the town of Monforte d’Alba, Italy on the eastern side of the Barolo appellation is Elio Grasso. A benchmark for classic, traditionally made Barolo, the family keeps production at a level where they can retain control over all aspects of winemaking. Elio works mostly in the vineyards, leaving the cellar work to his son Gianluca and wine consultant, Piero Ballario. All Grasso wines are produced using estate-grown fruit. The Barolos are produced from three, south-facing vineyards in Monforte: Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate, Gavarini Vigna Chiniera and Runcot. These steep vineyards are planted at 918-1,312 feet to loosely packed calcareous soils. Varietals are vinified separately, according to vineyard provenance and the wines, with the exception of the Chardonnay are fermented in steel. These wines combine structure with elegance, aromatic finesse, solid character and exceptional aging potential.
Technical notes
Fermented in stainless steel for 12-16 days with daily pumping over. Aged 24 months in 25 hectoliter barrels of Slavonian oak and then cellared for an additional 8-10 months. The wine rests in the bottle for 8- 10 months before release.
