POINTS OF INTEREST

Cultivated on one of the tallest hills in Barbaresco, this wine shows great energy and structure with enhanced rose, red cherry, blueberry, and plum. Savory notes of mint and leather stand out and lead to a captivating spectrum on palate and finish.

Barbaresco Vallegrande 2009

Barbaresco DOCG

Nebbiolo

One of the real pleasures for a wine lover is being able to taste a wine in the prime of its life. This library release comes straight from the Grasso cellar in Treiso, Italy. Deep powerful flavors dominate this vintage with earthy undertones supported by broad tannins that are round and complex. A warmer vintage that offers a full-flavored wine with broad appeal.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The brothers, Luigi and Alfredo are more interested in the process of farming and making wine than in selling it. Lucky for us, they let us pick through their cellar to offer vintages at the peak of the maturation process. These Library releases are rare glimpses into the world of aged wine and unlock the mysteries and flavors of how the noble Nebbiolo grape can age.
