Treiso CN, Italy (Piedmont)
Barbaresco Vallegrande 2015
Barbaresco is often times called the "Queen of Nebbiolo" because it is thought to be less powerful than Barolo. This wine will give Barolo a run for its money. A wine full of character that is deep in color and flavor, dark wild fruits of black cherry and cassis, with violet and rose, forest floor, spice, and tar. The 2015 shows power and richness with round tannins that are approachable and satisfying.

Luigi and Alfredo Grasso love what they do. You can tell by the way they smile and laugh all the time. They have been making wines together, none stop, for 50 years. They founded Fratelli Grasso with the family vineyards that were passed down to them in 1970. Not much has changed for them in this time.
