TASTING NOTES

"I have been lucky to drink the 2001 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Matè on many, many occasions. When I worked in finance it was one of my go-to wines on Manhattan wine lists because of its reasonable price and under the radar status. The 2001 is just as impressive today. Layers of menthol, pine, spices, black cherries and graphite come alive in the glass as this deep, muscular Barolo shows off its pedigree. Ginestra is one of Barolo's grand crus and that comes through in spades here. Everything is simply in the right place." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Time to move on to the reds. The 2001 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Matè from Elio Grasso is outstanding. There are plenty of Ginestra signatures in the glass. At the same time, I can't help noting that this small, family-run estate has since gone on to far greater heights. Still, the 2001 is an early gem from Gianluca Grasso." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Aromas of plums, dried flowers and new wood follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a juicy, fruity aftertaste. Long and luscious. Lovely wine again. Best after 2007. 1,165 cases made." Wine Spectator
