Description

The 2010 Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate is a more muscular and layered expression with a softer quality of fruit and a good amount of power and muscle at the back. Its aromatic delivery is constant and steady with an ever-changing array of red fruit, dark spice, cola and anisette. The tannins are particularly well defined and silky. Drink: 2018-2038. Gianluca Grasso says the 2008 Barolo Riserva Roncot will be released in 2015. I did not taste that wine because he felt it needed more time. Otherwise the Grasso family has been working hard with researchers at the University of Turin to identify ambient yeast that they may, or may not, utilize in the future. 2018-2038″ – 95 points, Wine Advocate, Monica Larner, June 2014

“Leather, tar and spice notes trump the dried cherry and berry flavors in this vivid Barolo. There’s sweetness midpalate, with dusty, mouthcoating tannins lining the finish. Balanced, but needs time. Best from 2019 through 2036. 980 cases made.” – 94 points, Wine Spectator — BS, September 2015
