The Grasso family was forced to farm very carefully in the scorching hot 2017 vintage. Leaves were left on the vines to provide shade for the clusters, and grasses between the vineyard rows were not cut in order to isolate the soils below. The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini sees fruit sourced from the youngest vines in the prized Rüncot site. Declassified grapes from that important cru are directed to this wine instead. This is a structured and richly textured Langhe Nebbiolo with dusty mineral sensations on the close. Gianluca Grasso is particularly proud of the hard work dedicated to this excellent value wine.

90 points | Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

This is a tremendously deep and concentrated effort from Gianluca Grasso from a wine that sees no ok whatsoever. A good pinch of this wine originated from the younger vines of the famous Rüncot Barolo vineyard. This is tremendous value.z
