Where It's From

Region / Piedmont

View more wines from Piedmont

Located in northwestern Italy near the Italian Alps, Piedmont is home to two of Italy's more famous wines: Barolos and Barbarescos. Each of these wines are made with the Nebbiolo grape, which is the premier red grape in the region. Other red grapes of note used in Piedmont include Barbera and Dolcetto. Among white wine grapes used in Piedmont are Moscatos, which are increasing in popularity here in the US. Piedmont's capital city Torino is also home to large productions of Vermouth, also made from Moscato.

The 2016 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is a vibrant, massively tannic, austere wine, the likes of which I have never tasted here before. Vertical and explosive in the glass with tons of pure power, the 2016 Gavarini Chiniera is a gorgeous Barolo that is going to need a number of years to be at its best. Swaths of tannin wrap around a core of sweet red cherry fruit. White pepper, mint, orange peel and floral notes develop a bit later, but the 2016 remains reticent and inward, with brilliant acids and tannins that dominate today. The 2016 is a striking wine, but it is going to require considerable patience.

The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate has a slightly darker profile of licorice, black cherry, and wood spice. The palate is generous and structured, with plum pit, mineral-rich earth, and dried orange blossom. These are wines with incredible aromatic complexity and depth. Drink 2025–2050. (Jeb Dunnuck)

The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable.

Soils in the Ginestra vineyard show more moisture-retaining clay in their composition, making them better positioned to handle hot and dry vintages such as this. The Elio Grasso 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté reveals soft concentration and extra richness; however, the aromatic nuances are well intact. I recall that the previous 2016 vintage took longer to come into focus, whereas this 2017 expression is open-knit and immediately accessible. The fruit is front and center, and the wine slides over the palate with a silky texture. Managing the tannins in 2017 was not easy, but this wine proves that lasting balance is not out of reach.

The Elio Grasso 2020 Barbera d’Alba Vigna Martina shows hot-vintage intensity with dark cherry, blackberry and spice. Barbera has a medium-long vegetative cycle, and it handles the warm seasons very well, although Gianluca Grasso tells me that the upcoming 2022 vintage is especially well-suited to this grape. This wine sees 20 to 25 days of submerged cap and finishes with 18 months in oak. The grape has naturally high acidity, “but climate change helps mitigate that issue,” says Gianluca. (Monica Larner)

Powerful and concentrated, featuring blackberry, plum, fruitcake and iron flavors. Exuberant and resonant on the long, iron- and spice-tinged finish. Think salumi and cheeses. Drink now through 2028. 1,300 cases made, 50 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

What you notice first on the Elio Grasso 2017 Barbera d’Alba Vigna Martina is a medley of crushed mineral, plum and some charred meat on the grill. The hot vintage works well with the Barbera grape, lowering the acidity and adding extra flavors of hazelnut, crushed flowers and dark fruit. Overall, this pretty wine is fresh and vibrant. Production is an ample 24,000 bottles.

The 2021 Dolcetto d’Alba dei Grassi is gorgeous. Effusive blue/purplish fruit, lavender, licorice, spice, cloves, graphite and a good bit of Monforte tannin infuse the 2021 with quite a bit of character. There is no shortage of personality here. This is far from an easygoing entry-level wine, that much is obvious. (Antonio Galloni)

Rich and fruity, boasting black cherry, blackberry and a hint of black pepper. Firms up on the finish, staying balanced and moderately long. Drink now. 1,300 cases made, 300 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Grasso’s 2017 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is fabulous. In fact, the Gavarini is easily one of the wines of the vintage because it retains all of its classic signatures, which is also the sign of a first-class vineyard. Bright and vibrant in the glass, the Gavarini pulses with energy. Crushed red flowers, mint, chalk, white pepper, cinnamon and orange peel give the 2017 a super-classic Nebbiolo profile, as expressed in a relatively high-altitude site. The precision and finesse of the tannins — so hard to find in 2017 — elevates the Gavarini into the realm of the sublime.
