One of the truly epic, reference-point wines of the year, the 2008 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate lifts from the glass with the classic scents of Ginestra. Pine, menthol, smoke, anise, new leather and violets are just the prelude as the 2008 opens up. Dark, mysterious and totally seductive, the 2008 is simply magnificent. Grasso is one of the hottest growers in Piedmont today. This is a great example of the level of quality that is the norm at this small, family-run estate.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038
