Silvio Grasso, Barolo Vigna Giachini 2001

Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY. 

Twenty years on.

Ruby. Handsome with concentrated juice and licorice presence. Dried meat chiffon and an oiled texture, mirabelle plum with an eau de vie effect. Classic La Morra tannins grow through it, then drier and mineral. It’s grounded, has a savory feel inside it, with the vintage’s layering. Now.
