  • 1999 Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté – Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (4/3/2019)

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, slightly brown twinge at least around the edges. Nose of barnyard, leather and anise. Flavors of licorice, berries and Ricola. Tart acidity, drying tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink. No rating. Seems a bit pre-moxed or otherwise damaged.
