2017 Grasso Fratelli Langhe Nebbiolo

$30.00

This is a full-bodied red that will benefit from decanting an hour or two before dinner. Perfect with red meat and game, or to accompany a holiday feast. Nebbiolo is the most exalted grape in Piedmont, and very possibly all of Italy, famous for its extraordinary power, elegance, and longevity. Because of the Grasso vineyards’ proximity to Barbaresco, this wine delivers much of the same aromatic beauty  as that famous appellation, but for significantly less money.

Grasso Fratelli winery

Grasso FratelliThe Piedmont region in Italy’s northwest, where the Apennines end and the Alps begin, is widely regarded as Italy’s version of Burgundy: a complex and varied terroir producing wines of extraordinary power and elegance. This is where you’ll find Grasso Fratelli, run by two brothers, Alfredo and Luigi, who have been farming their property east of Alba since the 1960s, never using synthetic herbicides or pesticides. Just over the line from Barbaresco, their wines deliver much of the same aromatic sophistication and depth as that famous appellation but for a much more reasonable price. We’ve assembled a half dozen of their wines, ranging from a couple of whites — including a stellar chardonnay — to their Dolcetto d’Alba and Langhe Nebbiolo. The Grasso wines are some of the best values in the region, and they’re made with deep respect for the earth.
