Grasso Fratelli 2012 – Barbera d’Alba

The nose is elegant, racy, fine and offers a slight concentration (in the background). It reveals notes of blackberry, wild black berries and small notes of crushed red berries associated with slight touches of tobacco, cardamom as well as a very discreet hint of nutmeg, pepper and an imperceptible hint of roasting. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a beautiful acidulous frame, harmony, gourmandise, a beautiful finesse, straightness, suavity, precision as well as a slight straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy black cherry and crushed / fleshy red berries associated with small touches of cassis as well as hints of blueberry, violet, olive / grove, blond tobacco, caramelization, cardamom and spices. Tannins are fine, elegant and structuring. (2020+)
